Event Details:

Lucas County Children Services (LCCS) is responding to requests for more flexible foster care and adoption training by offering a new and unique configuration of classes in January 2017, in addition to its traditional schedule of Saturday training classes starting in February.

LCCS will offers its traditional six-week series of Saturday-only classes, February 4 through March 11. All classes take place from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the agency’s offices at 705 Adams Street in downtown Toledo. “Interested applicants told us they were looking to complete the training process more quickly, even if it meant attending classes through the weekend, so we’re glad to offer that opportunity,” explains Yvette Muhammad, LCCS supervisor of licensing, training and recruitment.

Information and registration for either session is available by calling 419-213-3336 or visiting www.lucaskids.net. Additional training sessions are planned for Monday and Wednesday evenings, April 3 through May 10, and as a one-week program, June 19 through 24.
