FKCE Stands For Care
The Woodland Community College Foster and Kinship Care Education (FKCE) program serves Yolo County foster parents, kinship/relative care providers, and individuals interested in becoming foster parents or in adopting a child.
We provide free classes and workshops to individuals who are:
- Parenting a child placed in out-of-home care and you want to improve your parenting skills
- Taking care of a relative's child
- Need to complete the State mandated foster care education requirements
- Interested in being a foster or adoptive parent
The mission of Woodland Community College Foster and Kinship Care Education (FKCE) is to provide quality education and training for care providers of children and youth in out-of-home care so that these providers can meet the child's educational, emotional, behavioral and developmental needs. There are 523,000 reasons to provide education and support to families caring for children placed outside their birth families. This is the number of youth in the United States currently living in foster care because their own family is in crisis and cannot provide for their day-to-day needs.
