Is God calling you to begin the foster/ adoption journey?
Let us help you find your fit. Join us in person for an interest meeting to learn more about the need in our area, what to expect in the licensing process and how to begin. We will have local child placing agencies available to meet and answer any questions you may have. Dinner will be provided. Please register to attend.
A key part of becoming trauma informed is self care and understanding secondary trauma. It occurs when an individual is exposed indirectly to trauma. We invite foster/adoptive/kinship families, caseworkers, church staff, counselors and therapists to join us as Chris Legg takes us through a deep dive into learning about compassion fatigue, blocked care and secondary trauma. We hope you will take away skills to overcome and work through these hardships that come with ministering and loving on families.
