There are over 1,400 kids in foster care in Austin. Many of the foster families need support, especially babysitters. Due to state requirements, babysitters must be licensed through a foster care agency. The process is complex and each agency operates separately. In order to better the system, Fostering Hope in Austin is offering a one-stop-shop training for babysitters to get certified at eleven agencies at once. Karen made an announcement on Sunday about a Foster Care Babysitting Training on October 14th from 9-2:00 pm. Here is the link and all the details: https://www.fosteringhopeaustin.org/foster-care-babysitting-certification/
Registration closes on September 15th, so sign up now if you are interested!
If you are not interested in the babysitting training, please consider volunteering. Karen needs set-up, clean-up, and child-care volunteers. Let her know how you would like to help, and what you'd like to do >> firstname.lastname@example.org.
