What is Dependency 101?
Dependency 101 is a class for you and other parents involved in Dependency Court. It is run by “Veteran Parents” (parents who successfully reunited with their children). These parents will help you understand the process, introduce the role of the various professionals in the system, and give you information on what was helpful for them.

Dependency 101 is offered twice per month. On the second Thursday of each month, the class is 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. On the fourth Thursday, the class is from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. You may attend the same class as the other parent of your child as long as there is no restraining order in effect.
