Particpants are asked to attend both sessions in order to be thoroughly equipped to serve. We regret that childcare will not be available.
Training is free. Light refreshments will be provided.
What happens during training

Most importantly, you’ll learn about offering unconditional hope and help. That’s why our Friends’ motto is A Friend Loves At All Times.™
You’ll also receive a special Friends Manual which includes training information, supplemental materials, and resources.
At the conclusion of training, you will complete an information inventory and sign The Friend’s Pledge. We give you a certificate and Birthmothers pin, and welcome you as new Friends. (Please note that Friends will complete background and motor vehicle checks before being matched.)
Help us be prepared to accommodate new volunteers by registering for Friends Certification Training.
