Education & Training

The Gathering

The Gathering - Education for Foster and Adoptive Families
Foster, Adoptive, Relative Caregiver, and Safe Families, as well as professionals and anyone working with vulnerable children, join us on the 2nd Thursday of each month from 6-8pm at Harvest UMC for a hope-filled, topically-based training from leading child welfare experts. Examples of topics include:
  • Understanding Trauma
  • Healthy Attachment
  • Triggers
  • And much more
A light dinner is served and child/teen programming is available. Clinicians are available in some groups to help kids and teens navigate their own questions about foster care and adoption.
This is a one day event offered on two different days, for your convenience. Only RSVP for the day you plan to attend. At this time, we intend to host an in-person viewing of the Hope For The Journey simulcast at 360 Church (5250 McIntosh Rd, Sarasota, FL 34233). As the event nears, if we are unable to meet in person, we will adjust our plans accordingly.
