What is PRIDE (Parent Resources for Information, Development and Education)?

Developed in Illinois in 1993, PRIDE is a competency-based model for the development and support of resource (foster and adoption) families. It is designed to strengthen the quality of foster care and adoption services by providing a standardized, structured framework for recruiting, preparing and selecting foster and adoptive parents. It also provides foster parent inservice training and ongoing professional development.

The components of the PRIDE Program are:

  • Nine Pre-Service training modules (27 hours)
  • “Connection” homework assignments related to each session
  • Mutual Family Assessment – competency based and integrated with SAFE
  • Family Development Planning Tools (for ongoing education)
  • Nine In-Service training modules also available in digital format

Session Two: Teamwork Towards Permanence

Why are family relationships so important to growing children and youth? Session Two examines this question and explores ways in which families support a child or youth's identity, cultural heritage and self-esteem. In this session, applicants will learn the value of permanence in the lives of children and youth and how agencies seek to achieve this goal for all children and youth. This session presents tasks that resource parents need to accomplish to keep children and youth connected to important family and community relationships. Applicants will learn why teamwork is necessary to promote permanence for children and youth and will discover the unique role of resource parents as members of a professional team focused on meeting the needs of children and youth.
