Children's Home provides frequent training opportunities which are open to any professionals seeking continuing education. The agency strives to develop quality training programs presented by respected and recognized speakers. Although some cost is generally associated with each workshop for those who are not employees of Children's Home, the agency is frequently able to keep costs to a minimum.

Upcoming training sessions are listed below. If none are listed, check back often to view our most current offerings.
