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.
