In 2020, Ohio House Bill 8 (HB 8) authorized the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) to re-design the foster parent training curriculum and hour requirements. Since then, ODJFS has been drafting administrative code language to implement these changes. These changes will now take effect.
NOAS will implement these changes into our foster parent pre-placement and continuing education training beginning in January 2023. The training schedule can be found on our website, and look at our upcoming social media posts for information as well.
