In 2017 we made a huge commitment to training. We began utilizing a nationally-recognized, evidence-based curriculum called "Together Facing The Challenge."


In 2018 we enhanced our pre-service training and we added many more dates and times to our training schedule. This is our commitment to excellence in training.

We believe that equipping foster parents to understand trauma, along with a wide spectrum of other issues facing foster children, helps create more positive outcomes for foster children. It begins with excellent training, and you will find that here at Isaiah's Place.
