Training & more...

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 Foster Parent Training which is the required training course to be certified as a foster or adoptive parent in the State of Florida. 4KIDS Foster Parent Training 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.

Can one person really make a difference in the world? Former 4KIDS President and current Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale, 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?”
