Brought to you by the Virginia Department of Social Services
Join us November 20-21, 2019 for a two-day conference that will cover a variety of foster care and adoption topics—to meet the diverse needs and levels of experience of adoptive and foster parents, child welfare professionals, and people who were adopted or in foster care. The conference will kick off with an evening reception on November 20, 2019 and continue on November 21, 2019 with a full day of informative, engaging workshops.
We will offer workshops from expert speakers covering a range of topics, including:
- Supporting and preserving adoptive families
- Core issues in adoption
- Understanding Special Education
- Empowering Families raising children and youth with special needs
- Post adoption resources
- Search and Reunion
- Race, culture, and diversity in adoption and foster care
- Supporting children and families in adoption and foster care
- Recruiting and matching families for teens and children with special needs
There are nearly 450 children in foster care in our region that are in need of a home. Attend our information session to learn more about how you can help by becoming a foster parent. Our information session requires no commitment. During our time together we’ll provide more details about the children and teens we serve, as well as the extensive training and comprehensive support UMFS provides along the way.

If God calls us to orphan care, then how can we establish that in our church? How can we become doers of the Word if we don't feel called to foster? If you are interested in questions likes these, this pre-intensive to the OVC Conference is for you. (Find out more about the OVC Conference at www.ovcconference.com). Jason Johnson will help you understand large and small ways your church can be involved, and how to bring in the entire body of Christ instead of a few compassionate families.
Tickets are $35 and include a copy of the book, Everyone Can Do Something, as well as lunch.
We invite you to discover all the adoption programs we offer. We'll provide a snapshot of these programs and offer information on the children who are waiting for a safe, loving family. You will also learn how to make adoption more affordable with grants, loans, and tax credits.
