Child Hope Services and Foster VC Kids invite community members to an inspirational and informative Foster Care Summit, August 11

August 11 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

Free

Child Hope Services and Foster VC Kids will host a Foster Care Summit, August 11, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Calvary Chapel Oxnard, 1925 Eastman Avenue, Oxnard, 93030. The Foster Care Summit is free and community members are invited to learn about opportunities to support children and youth in care — either by becoming a resource, foster or adoptive family, or by supporting those who do.  For information and to register for the Foster Care Summit visit www.childhopeservices.org/2018fostercaresummit/

Currently, Ventura County has approximately 800 children and youth in need of support, guidance and hope to help them thrive while separated from their families of origin.

The Foster Care Summit will include presentations from:

  • Special guest Jason Johnson, a foster and adoptive father, writer and renowned speaker on orphan-related issues. He is the Director of The National Church Ministry Initiative with Christian Alliance for Orphans and author of All in Orphan Care.
  • Guest speaker Chelsea Cameron, a child of adoption herself will reflect on her choice to choose adoption. She will also share topics on loving well, building bonds and connections with children that are not her own.
  • Foster VC Kids about the training and support available to those interested in becoming a resource family who nurtures the safety, permanency and well-being of Ventura County’s youth and families.
  • Child Hope Services regarding the organization’s mission to support and cover foster families and foster youths with the practical resources needed in the critical first moments of foster care placement, along with supporting their long-term practical and relational needs.
