Quality foster parents can help break the cycle of child abuse.

Unfortunately, there just aren’t enough qualified volunteers who are willing to open their hearts and homes to the community’s most vulnerable children.

“There is a continual need for quality foster parents,” says Cherie Schroeder, who is the director of Woodland Community College’s Foster Care Education Program. “Every interaction with a hurt child is a chance to make a positive difference to rebuild a sense of safety and a basic trust in the world. Foster parents are a critical piece in helping abused and neglected children heal and move forward.”

Two opportunities are coming up to learn more about foster parenting in Yolo County.

First, on Monday, Aug. 11, local residents who are interested in becoming Yolo County licensed foster parents are invited to attend a free introductory workshop from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Arthur F. Turner Community Library, 1414 Merkley Ave. in West Sacramento.

A second opportunity is available on Tuesday, Sept. 2, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at Woodland Community College, 2300 E. Gibson Road. This free workshop will be held in Building 100, Room 101, and is the first in a series of required trainings to meet state licensing mandates that address caring for children who have been abused, neglected or abandoned.

This class will provide information designed to answer prospective foster parents’ questions about licensing requirements, home preparations and training expectations. Along with an overview of general foster care statistics, several Yolo County foster and adoptive parents and their children will share their stories of traditional foster care and fostering-to-adoption journeys.

For more information, contact Schroeder at 530-574-1964 or visit www.yolofostercare.com.
