Fostering Hope Monthly Support Group Meetings are where foster and adoptive families come to find community, support, connection, and encouragement. The majority of our meetings use the book Reframing Foster Care as a starting point for conversations. Each meeting also allows a time to share and for prayer requests. On occasion, we have a guest speaker or provide a specialized training session during our meeting time.
Our meetings are typically held on the first Tuesday of each month from 6:30 – 8:30 pm in Room 304 of the ROC Building with childcare available. However, due to current circumstances, meetings are being held online via Zoom video conference through the end of the year.
Meetings are being held in-person with an option to join via Zoom. Email email@example.com for more information and to be added to our email list.

Formerly known as Empowered to Connect, the Hope for the Journey Conference will equip parents and caregivers meeting the everyday needs of children impacted by adoption and foster care and further resource churches in their endeavors to be beacons of hope and encouragement for families in their congregation and surrounding communities.
We are excited to partner with Hope Street, Inc., who will be leading the day and providing an interactive experience with a combination of live and video-based instruction. The conference is free, and lunch and snacks are included. Childcare will not be available. Fostering Hope will provide certificates for licensing hours.
Online: There is an at-home viewing option available. We will provide digital attendees with a link to the pre-recorded conference that can be accessed anytime through May 31st. It will consist of the full event hosted by Show Hope. We have 30 links available to share. Register below to reserve your link. Certificates for licensing hours will be provided for digital attendees after completing a short quiz.
The Hope for the Journey Conference will include five high-level learning modules based on the foundational principles of TBRI along with a new teaching component, The Gospel + TBRI. Embedded within each learning module will be a “Going Deeper” teaching video on a select topic. Also included will be two practical, encouraging “Practical Perspectives” videos featuring the voices of adult adoptees and adoptive and foster families.
On November 8th we hosted Stand Sunday, a day where churches across America stand for children and families in foster care. This year, individuals and churches worldwide are being rallied to BE THE LIGHT for orphans and foster children. This call has never been more important, as it is always the vulnerable who suffer most when times are hard. Your prayers and acts of service, whether humble or grand, will bring light in a dark place.
Fruit Cove will once again recognize Stand Sunday with a special message. Representatives from local foster care licensing agencies, the Guardian Ad Litem Office, and Fostering Hope will be available between services to answer questions about ways to get involved.
