Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains hosts monthly foster care support and adoption support groups. Through these groups you can earn two (2) hours of training per group meeting attended. LFSRM also hosts Rules and Regulation trainings twice a year (April and October.)  Foster parents MUST attend a Rules and Regulations training at least once during their licensure year.
