For Christian couples and singles willing to open their home to a child in need of love, stability, and hope we offer training and support to become a foster parent. The first step toward becoming a foster parent is finding out exactly what's required.
4KIDS offers Model Approach to Partnership in Parenting (MAPP) Training
which is the required training course to be certified as a foster or adoptive parent in the State of Florida. 4KIDS MAPP Classes are limited to people who live in Broward or Palm Beach County and will be licensing with our agency. It is also designed for people who desire to work with a faith-based agency.
There are numerous resources to support you in this journey. 4KIDS recommends the following web resources
and Christian bookstores
for encouragement along the way.
Can one person really make a difference in the world? 4KIDS President Doug Sauder says the answer is a resounding YES in his book called The One Factor. The One Factor traces the impact of a single person, moment, investment and vision as it uncovers the Source of the one factor. Doug shares, “Recognizing the power of the one factor in my life and the lives of those around me, has been an incredible journey. My question to you is simple…will you be the next one?”
