I welcome you to my first training blog post! Giocosa is experiencing lots of growth from within our organization and with this growth comes new opportunities to help and serve our Giocosa families in different ways through training and education. I recently put out a survey to our families to assess your training needs. I got about 27 responses from our families. This response represents about 33% of our families! I will post the link here on this blog and request that if you have not filled it out, you do so immediately. We can only arm ourselves with the best knowledge possible, moving forward, with your input. You have the chance to effect change in your Child Placing Agency, and I hope you understand how powerful and exciting that is for all of us! The survey will be open until the end of December 2016 and then it will be closed.
With this blog, I plan to post helpful information regarding training and education opportunities (free and not free) within our communities and Giocosa that will hopefully benefit you and aid you in your journey as foster parents. I will also utilize this blog to receive communication from you regarding your experiences and needs for training. On this blog, you will find links to our current and upcoming training offerings. Please use this as your go to guide for information regarding your Giocosa foster parent training.
All my best,
