Respite Care Training- Agape Ranch

Emmaus Family,

There is an upcoming opportunity to attend a training to get certified and become a provider for foster parents in our community and we wanted to share the information for anyone that might be interested.

What is Respite Care?

When foster parents care for their foster children, they will eventually be in need of a break for an evening or they will need to travel out of state for personal reasons without their foster children. When these situations arise, they are required to leave their foster children under the care of trained respite care providers and not just any babysitter. So, by becoming a respite care provider, you would become a huge support and an answer to a need of our local foster parents.

There are already a handful of people at Emmaus that have gone through the training and that have already served as providers. If you would like to hear more about their experiences or if you have any questions about their experience, feel free to contact Dane Robie, Lindsay Robie, Bekah Pettijohn, Mike Pettijohn, Ryan Dewbre, Sarah Dewbre, and Kellie Page.

About the training:

Agape Ranch has partnered with local CPA agencies, so the training will include informative sessions led by a representative of each of these agencies and will conclude with a required First Aid and CPR training.

Lunch will be provided by Chick-fil-A- La Palmera Mall, thanks to Edmond Long and his team!

More specific details about the training are included in the attached flyer, but please feel free to contact me if you have any questions (361-944-6931).

I’m working Saturday but I’m interested in this. Would there be another opportunity to do respite training in the upcoming months?

Liddy Vargas on 01/16/2018

Lexy, I will be posting on the Emmaus Page in the future for upcoming trainings, once I get the actual dates I can give you a heads up! Let me know if you have any other questions!

Liddy Vargas on 01/16/2018

Is there anyone that would like to help volunteer for childcare for the people getting trained?

There are two shifts: 1st shift (9:15-1PM) and 2nd shift (1-5:15PM)

I am in need of one person for the 1st shift, and 2 people for the 2nd shift.

If you are interested, please comment or contact me directly (361-944-6931). Thank you!
