RESPITE MIX AND MINGLE 9/17/22
September 17 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Please note that unfortunately childcare will not be provided for this event.
Join us for a Respite Mix & Mingle! This is a great chance for resource families looking for community members interested in supporting foster parents through offering respite.
You can expect our team to provide a brief overview of respite followed by a time of getting to know you in smaller group settings. If connections are made it will be the responsibility of the resource parent to make an introduction through email to the family's certifier who can begin the background check. There is NO application process currently required by the Oregon Department of Human Services Child Welfare Division to offer respite to families. However, you will be asked by the certifier to complete:
- An approved background check
- Review Mandatory Reporters training video https://youtu.be/iO4uRPbI4YQ
Coffee & pastries provided.
Respite support is one of the most essential needs that parents have. Thank you for joining us to support families well!
We look forward to meeting you!
PLEASE BE ADVISED REGISTRATION CLOSES ON SEPTEMBER 15TH AT 5:00 PM
