We are pleased to host this live simulcast event, the Empowered to Connect Conference, on April 13-14, 2018. Come experience practical teaching in a safe and supportive community. Show Hope, along with Empowered to Connect, works to equip families, churches, and professionals to better serve children impacted by adoption and foster care. 

This two-day-conference will be held at CrossPoint Church. Each day's sessions will run from 8:45am-5pm (check-in opens at 8am), with a one hour lunch break.

The Empowered to Connect Conference features Trust-Based Relational Intervention? methods developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross from the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development to help bring attachment and connection in families. The content is ideal for adoptive and foster parents, those considering adoption or foster care, and those who are serving and supporting others, including social workers, agency professionals, church staff and ministry leaders, counselors and therapists, childcare providers, and extended family members.
