We're part of a group that hosts children while families are in crisis. Safe Families for Children. I'm hoping to host a class to educate host families on correct car seat usage. I contacted the Safe Kids representative in our area, but was just told to go to a fire station to have seats checked. I'm looking for a broader class than that. Rather than a specific check for one child, and one seat, I'm after something that will help host parents be generally prepared to use a car seat with any age child. Some host parents haven't had children for many years, or perhaps not at all, and then suddenly there will be a sibling group placed with them. These parents need a starting place - when to forward face, when to rear face, who needs a booster. That sort of thing.

Who should I contact? Any leads on how to set this up? We're in the Raleigh area, North Carolina.

I reached out to a former tech in the area. First, are you looking for a certificate or anything like that? Second, your best bet is probably Wake County Human Services, ask for Suzanne.
