PS-MAPP (Partnering for Permanence and Safety: Model Approach to Partnerships in Parenting) is the 5th step toward becoming a foster/fost-adoptive parent.
This 30-hour training class is required of all foster and fost-adoptive parents. The class will inform prospective parents on topics such as: shared parenting, parenting children with a trauma-background, the legal process in foster care/adoption, requirements of foster/adoptive parents, and more. Prospective foster parents will evaluate their family’s strengths and needs, so that they can make an informed decision to become a foster or fost-adoptive home.
We encourage Mission Foster families to attend a PS-MAPP class at Mission or another East Valley AZ 1.27 church because it provides opportunities to create community with other foster and fost-adoptive families who have similar perspectives towards the ministry of foster/adoption.
