NOAS offers two types of classes to accommodate varying schedules. Weekend blitz classes are offered three to four times a year where all 36 hours of required training is completed in three days and regular class series are offered four times a year, which are completed over a month. The regular class series starts April 14 and runs until May 1. Adults over 21 can find out more about Ohio children and teens served by the child welfare system who are waiting for the love, stability, and support of a permanent home.

The deadline is Wednesday. If a participant can’t attend a certain session, make up opportunities are available. Call Cindy Wallis at 1-800-686-6627, ext. 126, as soon as possible because of limited space.
