Hope for the Journey Conference in San Jose

May 17 5:00 pm May 18 3:00 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.

Hosted at Neighborhood Bible Church, in San Jose, you can expect to be welcomed with warm hospitality, and professional staff who embrace TBRI practices. Dinner will be provided on Friday night, as well as continental breakfast items, and lunch on Saturday. Both days will include water, tea, and coffee. Either payment or a scholarship code is required to submit your registration.
