Training
ou need to encourage the Resource Families Training Calendar • Fall 2012 Greetings Resource Parents,
Welcome to all those families who have come forward to help other families in providing a safe and nurturing home for our children. Whether you are a foster, adoption or kinship fam-ily you all have embraced the need to provide stability and a caring home that encourages a child's growth and development.
For several years now, the resource departments within the two largest Children's Aid Societ-ies in Ontario have formed a partnership that has serviced Resource Families in both agencies. Learning opportunities that are specific to the role of resourcing children has always been of great need in order to ensure that families are prepared for their journey. Training is critical for resource parents to prepare for their role and responsibilities and supports the building of competencies. We continue to support the development of the resource family by ensuring that the PRIDE ‘core' or mandatory training is on each calendar and that there are a number of ‘electives' that will touch upon the needs of the child(ren), caregiver and their family. As we strive for permanency for children, ongoing learning helps to prevent placement breakdown by building knowledge and resiliency of the resource family.
We have heard your request and are attempting to organize training events in the west end of the city. Please look in this and future calendars for learning events that may be offered in Eto- bicoke. As always, it is essential to register for events and for babysitting when needed. There are fees involved with locations and having babysitters available to watch children and we want to carry on being fiscally responsible so we can continue to offer these opportunities.
Children's Aid Society of Toronto's – Resource for Children & Youth has moved its office to 20 De Boers Drive in North York. This northwest site will accommodate evening training and St. Andrew's Church will continue to be the daytime training location. Please continue to contact us for any training ideas and/or suggestions. JoAnne Cheeatow • Catholic Children's Aid Society of Toronto
