Foster/Adoptive Parent Support
All foster/adoptive/kinship providers are welcome to attend BIST classes at any time. While we provide training opportunities for both Level A (behavioral) & Level B (career) certification, if you are not taking a training for Level A/B certification, you may still receive credit as in-service hours for licensure.
When your licensing worker says you are ready for the training required to care for children with elevated needs, you can register for both Level A/B classes at cornerstonesofcare.org. Level A includes 18 class hours, and Level B includes 9 class hours.
We have contracted with FosterAdopt Connect to provide in-home consultation and support services to foster parents whose children are struggling with disruptive behaviors. If you are exasperated and feel like giving up, please call 816.350.0215 and ask to be referred for an in-home BIST consult. Your information will be passed along to us and a member of the BIST team will contact you to set an appointment.
