Welcome to Southwest Missouri Foster Parent Support Group. This group is for foster, adoptive, kinship, and guardianship families. Parenting can be very difficult. Children that have experienced trauma may need additional parenting techniques. Being able to share our experiences with other families that truly understand what we are going through can be very helpful. We want you to know that you are not alone. 

Ever wonder why your foster child struggles during the holidays?  Please join us as we will discuss triggers, grief, and ways you can help to make these holidays a little better for your whole family.

We will meet from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM for training and from 10:00 PM to 11:00 AM for support.   Upon completion 2 hours of training credit will be received.
