The road to becoming a certified foster parent with Tabor begins with completing our general pre-service training class series. Our training classes are generally six weeks long, with one class per week.

Topics covered during the training sessions are:

  • Overview on children from the system
  • Child Abuse Prevention
  • Fire Safety
  • Health and Wellness and more!

During the pre-service training process, candidates must apply for required clearances:

FBI, Child Abuse and State Criminal Record. Additional documents will be collected during this process to allow us to get to know each candidate and his/her background for screening purposes.

Tabor is one of Philadelphia’s premier Treatment Foster Care agencies offering treatment level training. In addition to the General Pre-Service training listed above we offer advanced training classes for treatment level children once the general training classes are completed.

Once you complete the Pre-service training classes you may be eligible to move on to the Home Study portion of the certification, where a Tabor designee would come to your home to inspect and assure it is fit for a foster child placement.
