On March 18th, many foster and adoptive parents, mentors, caregivers and social workers and social service agencies representatives came together to learn together at Defending the Cause Regional Alliance‘s first Training Up Conference. This conference was designed to teach individuals and families involved with caring for kids from hard places on topics such as attachments, sensory and emotional processing and more. Regional experts taught great tools and insights that provided encouragement and support to everyone in attendance. Defending the Cause Regional Alliance was formed in the past year to create a collaborative network of churches, nonprofits, agencies and professionals who can find and empower one another in their work of protecting kids and strengthening families.
