Family Support Gatherings

COVID-19 COMMUNITY UPDATE: We value community and want to continue to meet together to support and equip caregivers. In response to the CDC recommendations, we will be suspending all in person gatherings and opting to utilize technology to stay connected, while keeping everyone healthy. Click the links below to register for one of our groups.

Please email [email protected] with any questions.

We all need someone to lean on. That is especially true for those who foster, have adopted, or who are waiting. Join other like-minded parents for a time of connection and sharing. Don’t see a group in your area? Email [email protected] and we’ll help you get one started.


These unique gatherings connect adoptive and foster families to a local church who will wrap around and provide physical, emotional, and prayer support. You do not have to be a member of a church to join. All are welcome.

Community gatherings will offer teaching for both kids and adults, as well as crisis intervention for families.  They are a place of authentic community and learning for adoptive, foster, and kinship families at all stages of the parenting journey.

Community Gathering leaders are experienced adoptive parents who will facilitate a teaching time and lead the discussion so that families feel free to share with other like minded families.  Training certificates are available for those who need them.

We are excited to get together each month to encourage and support each other through this journey of foster care and adoption.

This group is open to all adoptive, foster, and waiting moms, who want to build deeper connections with their children, make new friends who understand this adoption and foster care journey, and be encouraged.
