Foster Community Network
We encourage our foster families to interact with one another to build a support system with others that share a common journey.
Our staff will even help plan social events and group activities periodically to help promote building relationships with each other.

Marland's Place offers a variety of trainings to keep you up to date on the best practices in foster care, as well as partner with DHS to advocate for foster parent needs.
Some trainings include understanding child development, trauma responsive care, and positive parenting.
