Prior to beginning training, there is an Orientation to help answer any questions you may have about moving forward. If you decide you would like to be a foster caregiver you will be asked to fingerprint through the Pechanga Tribal Rangers. Training consists of 5 Modules:
- Module 1 – Trauma, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, & The Road to Healing
- Module 2 – Understanding Child Abuse, Neglect, & The Impact of Domestic Violence
- Module 3 – Understanding Attachment & Healthy Foundations
- Module 4 – Grief, Loss, & Healing: The Road to Raising Healthy, Responsible and Respectful Children
- Module 5 – Resource Sharing & Graduation Celebration
Each module will be provided once a week on Thursdays from 9am – 12pm with the goal of completion in one month. Once the training is completed the home assessment process begins.
The home assessment includes a walk-through of the home to ensure all safety needs are met. The home assessment includes 3 face to face interviews. The next step is a written report. The written report includes a family social study. Once completed you will be a trained and approved placement for native children in the community.
