“This training really helps to encompass the whole process on what that looks like for these kids to coming into the foster home and then how the foster parents can help to alleviate some of that stress that those kids are going to go through,” said Heather Hultgrien, CEO of Renewed Horizon.

“Foster Homes are desperately needed!” the nonprofit said in a Facebook post announcing the class.
