Strengthening Foster Care and Adoption through Partnership with Faith-based Agencies and Communities
Followed by a Panel Discussion with
Executive Director, Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute
President, Christian Alliance for Orphans
Executive Director of Small World Adoption Programs, National Christian Adoption Fellowship
America’s child welfare system is overburdened. The opioid crisis is putting thousands more children at risk. In response, some states are recruiting new families to foster and, in some cases, to adopt through partnerships with faith-based agencies and faith communities. Other states are suspending cooperation with child welfare agencies because of their religious beliefs. These disagreements have led to litigation in multiple states and the displacement of thousands of children.
As the need for the number of foster and adoptive families increases, America needs solutions that work best for children. Please join us for an address by Governor Bevin followed by a panel discussion on this pressing issue.
