Meet the Trainers
Guardians of dependent children and kinship families are welcome to attend all classes provided statewide by the Resource Family Institute, free of charge, whether or not you are licensed.
Hello! My name is Bill Todd, and I am one of three trainers in Region 6 in NW Washington. My area of responsibility includes Jefferson, Clallam, Mason and Grays Harbor Counties.
I have worked within the Social Service field for eleven years. I started with Children's Administration as a CPS worker, and then moved to CWS (Child Welfare Service), and even did a short stint as a Family Reconciliation worker, and an ICW worker for two Indian Nations. My longest SW service work has been as a foster home Licensor for 3 1/2 years in Shelton and in Aberdeen, where I personally licensed over 100 homes.
I am a graduate of the Evergreen State College (class of 98') with an emphasis on Culture and Behavior in children and adolescents.
I've enjoyed working with and training new and experienced foster parents both as a Licensor and as a Trainer. I truly value the work that foster parents do, the benefits you receive and the challenges you face.
When I am not working, I enjoy playing in the garden, watching movies with my wife and taking care of our two cats "Buttercup" and "Popeye".
