The Empowered to Connect Conference is a two-day simulcast sponsored by Show Hope. The conference is for foster and adoptive parents, those considering foster care and/or adoption, social workers, counselors, therapists, teachers, and really anyone who encounters children. This event is designed to help you learn how to connect with children who come from hard places in order to help them heal and become all that they can be.
We are partnering with Hillside Children’s Center to present a live simulcast of the conference April 8-9 here at Christ Community Church. The simulcast will start at 10 am and end at 6 pm both days. Brockport has many places to eat, so attendees have the choice of eating out or bringing a lunch and eating at Christ Community Church during the lunch break.
Tickets are $10 per person. Registration with a workbook is open from February 28-April 4. Any registrations after April 4 will receive instructions for a downloadable e-version of the workbook. Walk-in registrations on the days of the conference are also welcome.
Sign in will be open from 9:15-10:15am both days. There will be coffee and light snacks available.
Continuing Educational Units (CEUs) are available for professionals as well as parent training credits for prospective foster/adoptive parents. It is $25 per person to obtain CEUs. Bring your print out with the barcode to the simulcast and we will scan it when you sign in.
The schedule for the conference is as follows:
FRIDAY, April 8
