Babysitting Collaborative October 5th, 2019

Saturday, October 5, 2019, 9:00 AM

Did you know that 50% of foster families quit after just one year? One of the top reasons they stop is that just don’t get a break when they need it. The strict state requirements for providing respite care (babysitting) for a foster child has made the task of finding childcare nearly impossible for many foster families. The South Texas Alliance for Orphans is determined to change this! At this Babysitting Collaborative event, we have partnered with 12 local foster agencies to combine the multiple training steps and simplify the paperwork process.  Certification that used to take weeks can now be completed in just one day! We have even partnered with local companies for free and discounted services. Register today – spots are limited and we will likely sell out! * You must be 18 years of age to complete this training. * Total out-of-pocket costs for certification will be approx. $90 ($45 FBI fingerprinting, $30 CPR, and $15 event registration).*Thanks to a generous grant from the Gage Foundation, FREE CPR/First Aid for the first 50 people to register! You can be an integral part of keeping children in foster care in a secure and loving home. By giving their foster parents the breaks they need, they’ll be able to refresh, refocus, and re-enter the mission field of loving our city’s most vulnerable kids. Participating agencies: 1 Hope for Children, A World for Children, Bair Foundations, Boysville, Children's Shelter, Divinity Family Services, Pathways Youth and Family Services, Providence Place, Respite Care of San Antonio, SJRC, Therapeutic Family Life, TruLight 127 Ministries, and Upbring.
