Hope for the Journey Conference in San Jose

April 21, 2023 5:00 pm April 22, 2023 3:30 pm


Show Hope’s Hope for the Journey Conference brings together proven, practical teaching and insight as well as everyday, hopeful wisdom for those who are meeting the needs of children impacted by adoption and/or foster care, such as parents/caregivers, teachers, and youth/children’s ministry volunteers. Through this conference, you will gain a better understanding of their complex needs along with resources to equip you as you come alongside them.

Hope for the Journey Conference will include five pre-recorded video sessions based on the foundational principles of Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) along with real stories featuring adult adoptees as well as adoptive and foster families.

Continental breakfast items, cold-cut meats and cheese, snacks, and coffee will be provided but we will not provide an entire meal on either day. We will have a list of restaurant recommendations in the area for our 90-minute lunch break on Saturday.
