How to Advocate for Children Placed in Your Home
If you wish to support families who foster and/or adopt, but don't believe attending the conference is the best fit for you, please consider signing up for a volunteer shift during the conference. There are multiple jobs and time slots to choose from. We need YOU to make it all happen!!
While the conference ends at 3:30pm on Saturday, the fun doesn't have to!
We are offering a reception with free food and drinks at a nearby restaurant for the first 50 attendees that RSVP. This will be an amazing opportunity to continue processing what you've heard and connect with others.
Contact us if you want to attend this reception.
One of our main speakers at Entrusted 2017, Stef Loveland, brought her testimony and a heavy dose of TRUTH to the stage (all while keeping the video guys on their toes with her movement and energy)!!
