from Hope for Orphans...
Introducing the Hope For Orphans InstituteA crisis is brewing in the adoption movement. As more and more families adopt, the number of adoptive families struggling with a special needs, older child or at risk adoption continues to rise. In fact, at Hope for Orphans, we have been seeing the impact of these struggles – maxed out stress levels, families, marriages, & kids in crisis and adoption disruptions increasing at concerning levels.
In light of this, on September 16 & 17 at the Hope Center in Plano, Texas we will be hosting the first HFO Institute. This two- day conference will tackle these issues head on with eight of the leading experts in the US.
Orphan Ministry leaders will learn about tools, resources, and skills that will help them implement a plan for their church. Professionals will learn skill sets they can use, but more importantly how they can partner with the local church. Licensed Social Workers, Marriage & Family Therapists and Professional Counselors can earn credit for Continuing Education Units (CEU).
Now is the time for the Church to have a vision for serving the families of special needs and at-risk children and addressing the issue of adoption disruptions. We hope this event will be a catalyst for mobilizing the church to respond. For more information, go to hfoinstitute.org
