District 2 - Multnomah County

Updated February 6th, 2017

Multnomah County
Foundations Training

You must meet with a Foster Certifier or Adoption Worker and be instructed to attend Foundations Training before attending these classes. Each parenting caregiver in your home must attend one of each Foundations session.

If DHS has emergency placed children in your home, you must attend “Foundations 1: System Orientation” within 30 days of placement.

You MUST PRE-REGISTER for each session of the Foundations series. If you just SHOW UP, and we have a fully registered session, you will NOT be able to stay.

Sorry, we are unable to provide Child Care for most classes. Children may not attend classes due to class size and inappropriate content.
