"We purchased a Trauma Knowledge Masterclass license for our organization. One of our families, who went through the course, said the class really opened their eyes and helped them to prepare to parent children with a trauma history. We had another parent, who went through Setting Up Your Home For Success, tell us that she wished she would have known the content that was presented when she first started fostering. She felt it was such great information."
