PS-MAPP Training

PS-MAPP stands for Partnering for Safety and Permanence Model Approach to Partnerships in Parenting. Every potential foster or adoptive parent is required to complete PS-MAPP training before a child can be placed in their home. The goal of the ten week training course is to help you and your family decide whether or not fostering a child is right for you.

The program guides potential applicants through the complex issues they will face as Resource Foster parents. Through carefully designed activities, parents see firsthand the challenges of fostering. Using both group and individual exercises, leaders help parents decide if their expectations and abilities match the realities of being a Resource Foster parent. Mutual preparation and selection enable parents and Pathway Family Services to build the basis of teamwork toward permanency for children and their families. Partnerships in parenting become partnerships for permanency. When Resource Foster parents understand the needs of children and their families, it is more likely that permanency will be achieved. This program enables Resource Foster parents to work more effectively with children and their families in the child welfare system.

Note: All office locations are held at TFI Family Services, Inc.
