Preparing to Become A Foster Parent

at Mount Saint Vincent

Join us for this FREE, virtual training course

There are so many questions to consider when thinking about becoming a foster parent. Let our Foster Care instructors and the National Training and Development Curriculum (NTDC) guide you through the process.

The NTDC Curriculum is a training model based on research and input from experts, families who have experience with fostering or adopting children, and former foster and adoptive youth.

Our 10-week course is FREE and virtual. It will be held once a week from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

To give you the opportunity to field your questions to an experienced panel of foster parents, the tenth and final session will be in person at Mount Saint Vincent. We’ll serve you dinner, explain our program and introduce you to our parent panel. Our support doesn’t stop here. You’ll leave with access to NTDC’s resources so you can continue to build on your skills once you have a foster child in your home.

We have three opportunities to take the class in 2024:

  • January 25, 2024 – March 28, 2024: To be held virtually on Thursday evenings with the final session being in person on March 28th.
  • April 24, 2024 – June 26, 2024: To be held virtually on Wednesday evenings with the final session being in person on June 26th.
  • August 29, 2024 – October 24, 2024: To be held virtually on Thursday evenings with the final session being in person, delayed to November 7 due to holiday.

Registration closes one week before each class begins. To schedule an information session and register, please contact our Foster Care Manager by email at fostercare@msvhome.org or by phone at (303) 318-1704. Make sure to indicate the class date you are interested in attending. We look forward to having you!
