RFA Orientation: Resource Family Pre-Approval Series May 2024

May 4 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

This is your INVITATION to our Resource Family Pre-Approval Series.

In the Orientation Class we go over the process for becoming an Approved Yolo County Resource (Foster or Kinship) Home.

If you know an interested local family, we would love you to invite or even join them for the series.  If you plan to join us for the series, please email that you plan to attend – it is appreciated. Please also complete the Release Form and send it to us by email or mail.

Concurrently, you can fill out the Yolo County RFA Application.  If you have specific questions on the application you can reach out to Nellie.Evans@yolocounty.org, the RFA Supervisor. After you complete the RFA  application and the Pre-Approval classes, the County RFA Team is given 90 days to work with you.

There is a Pre-Approval Series held each month of the year.  Check the FKCE Calendar for future class dates and times.

Via Zoom.  FOR ALL THE CLASSES there is one link; it will take you 3-4 minutes to register each time.


Register in advance for this meeting. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
