Alabama’s licensing classes are called Trauma Informed Partnering for Safety (TIPS). Lifeline is partnering with local DHR offices to facilitate these classes.
These classes include an orientation followed by 10 weeks of training.
If you are interested in becoming a licensed foster parent, please plan to attend an Orientation Meeting. Your presence at this meeting is required prior to beginning the TIPS course and is a great way to decide if becoming a foster family is right for you!
The Orientation class is from 6-8pm and the Training classes are from 6-9pm
Childcare will not be provided
Classes are open to individuals living in Shelby, Jefferson, Talladega, Chilton, Tuscaloosa, St Clair & Blount County
