Certified Caregivers

Foster caregivers are certified by the state of Ohio to provide temporary care to children who cannot remain in their homes and do not have family members or other kin able to care for them. Foster caregivers provide a nurturing, safe, and stable home while preparing the child for permanency, whether that is through reunification with their family, placed with legal custody with family or other kin, or adoption.

To help foster caregivers identify their training needs, agencies can use the caregiver Individual Training Needs Assessment (ITNA).

To find training in needed areas, foster caregivers can search in CAPS LMS by the identified topic.
