Give Me a Break! Hosting a Respite Night for Foster Parents at Your Church

Lacking childcare options can lead to foster parent burnout and turnover. Your church is uniquely positioned to help provide relief to caregivers in the form of a “parents night out” to combat caregiver fatigue and keep more children in safe, loving homes. Come learn practical steps and tips that will help you connect with families, train volunteers, and host an event that has an impact on the lives of children and families in your community. This workshop is ideal for church staff, ministry lay-leaders, and foster/adoptive parents.
