Program Overview

Foster and Kinship Care Education Programs

The Foster & Kinship Care Education Program (FKCE) has been a part of SRJC since 1985. FKCE is designed to support and train professional care-givers who care for children placed in out-of-home care. We specialize in Trauma-Informed Care, Cultural Humility, Developing Healthy Sexuality in Youth in Care, LGBTQ and Gender Expression, and Family Resiliency trainings.

We also offer support to current or former foster youth who are:

  • In high school preparing for college (Independent Living Skills)
  • Out of high school, enrolled at SRJC and taking less than 3 units
  • Over 25
  • Over the credit limit of  EOPS services
  • Enrolled at SRJC and would like a part-time job on campus

If you fit these criteria, please contact Nick Lawrence at or 707-535-3752.
