National Resource Center for Youth Services: Resource Family Training & Support


Support Groups for Region 2

Support Network Groups are designed to assist resource parents with in-service training, community resource information, peer support, and communication with DHS. Attending on a regular basis is not only a great way to get the emotional and practical support you need to succeed, it's a great way to stay on top of the training requirements you need to fulfill. Some groups serve dinner or snacks; all provide child care with your RSVP. Please contact the facilitator to find out about the topic or confirm your attendance.

November meeting:

Could these behaviors be caused by something else?

Join us as we explore the science behind how a diet high in sugar, dyes, and other foods can affect your child’s behavior. Learn about how Nutrition Response Testing could help improve overall well-being. We will also discuss the long-term effects that heavy metal toxicity can have on us and ways to combat this.

Our speaker is LaKrista O’Dell from Native Wellness.

Training Credit: Parents in attendance will earn 2 hours of in-service training credit toward your annual 12-hour requirement. Come connect and learn with other kinship, foster, and adoptive families in Garvin, McClain, and surrounding counties.

Childcare is available with a reservation as well as a light meal. RSVP by contacting Tara Brown at OR 405-251-0084 by noon Thursday, November 9, 2023, so we can prepare for you.
