STEPS TO FOSTER OR FOST-ADOPT

ATTEND PS-MAPP CLASSES

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.

 

IF YOU INTEND TO TAKE A CHURCH-HOSTED PS-MAPP CLASS, PLEASE CONNECT WITH AZ 1.27 PRIOR TO SELECTING YOUR AGENCY. AZ 1.27 WILL WORK WITH YOUR LICENSING AGENCY TO INSURE THAT REQUIREMENTS ARE MET PRIOR TO ATTENDING PS-MAPP.

 

AZ 1.27 PS-MAPP classes are accepted by all agencies for licensure/certification.

 

IMPORTANT: Prior to attending PS-MAPP, you must have completed the following steps:

  • Attend Orientation

  • Complete intake appointment with agency
  • Have fingerprints taken and send in fingerprint submission card
