Foster Care and Adoptive Care Pre-Service Training and Resources Region III


P.R.I.D.E. was initiated by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services and the Child Welfare League of America. The Pre-service component of the Foster and Adoptive Care training consists of 27 hours of training, generally done over a nine week time period (or 4.5 weeks when done on Saturdays).

The goals of the PRIDE program are:

“We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked, and homeless. The poverty of being uwanted, unloved, and uncared for is the greatest poverty.” • Mother Teresa
