Be ready for a reappearance of many of our past favorites, as well as some exciting new additions!
Community will begin for many and will strengthen for many more.
If you can see value in encouraging and supporting people who give their lives to love on vulnerable children in our community and around the world - we need you!
We need help with everything from registration tables to brewing coffee to manning the bookstore. If you want to love on this community of foster and adoptive parents and can give some time on Friday night, November 15th, and/or Saturday, November 16th, to help this conference run smoothly, please sign up to volunteer.
Volunteer spots are in short increments of time and you can sign up for one or for multiple throughout the weekend!
We're adding a coaching table option to the conference this year! This will be an opportunity to sign up to speak with an expert one-on-one about a specific topic or area of need. The sessions will run in 20 minute increments.
Sign-ups will go "live" for these sessions about a week in advance. Check Facebook for real time updates.
Meet with a professional financial advisor to discuss the specifics of your financial situation and how to make the best choices to get out of or stay out of debt as you navigate adoption and future planning.
Whether you've been on this foster/adoption journey for a while or are just starting to dip a toe in these waters, you may be asking "what's next?". This coaching table will be an excellent place to share about where you are and find out the most practical next step that could be right for you.
Come to this table to meet one-on-one with a licensed counselor to discussion any fears/concerns/behaviors that you believe could use some extra attention.
Adoptions can be very expensive! Maybe you've decided to pursue a domestic infant or international adoption, but want some practical ideas about how to fundraise all or part of your adoption. We will have a representative who has walked with many families through expensive adoptions and can lend some advice on how to get started.
Whether you're coming in from out of town or local and just looking to make a weekend out of this conference, here are a few hotels nearby that are offering great rates! Just mention that you're with the Entrusted Conference when you book over the phone.
