Connecting Families 

We are so excited to be offering a very special opportunities for foster/kinship families. We are partnering with various churches in the Upper Cumberland region to offer a monthly event which will include dinner and childcare, provided by the church, and entertainment provided by the UCFC. This will be a great opportunity for parents to connect with one another. No one quite understands a foster parent's journey like another foster parent. 

Families must register for this event. Check out the schedule below. Some dinners may have a registration limit due to church capacity so don't wait to sign up. We are hoping to offer this opportunity in different areas, but you are welcome to attend the event at any location. You also do not have to have children currently in your home. You just have to be a current foster parent. These events are specifically for you to have the opportunity to connect with other foster/kinship parents.
