Prospective adoptive parents are required to complete 24 training hours of pre-adoptive training called Foundations. Foundations training is offered in several locations throughout the state.
The links below will outline foundations classes available at each of these organizations:
State of Oregon Foundations Training
Boys and Girls Aid Society Foundations Training
Christian Family Adoptions, email for Foundations Training information
While the Foundations training is a requirement we do not recommend this is the only training you complete. There are many great trainings, classes, books, and videos that talk about the foster care experience, working with children, and parenting. We strongly encourage you to gain as much knowledge as you can along the way.
