Josiah White’s had the opportunity to partner with ITOWN Church in Indianapolis to sponsor a Foster Care conference in the fall of 2023. Special guest, Jamie Finn, President of Foster the Family, delivered the keynote, and several Josiah White’s staff led breakout sessions alongside Pastors Dave and Kate Sumrall of ITOWN Church and representatives from Kids Voice (CASA).
The one-day conference included sessions of encouragement, training, and support for anyone involved in serving children in need. Breakout sessions offered covered topics ranging from how churches and community members can support foster families to behavior techniques from a trauma-informed and strength-based holistic model of care.
Josiah White’s Foster Care Advocate Rachel Reames said of the event, “Impactful, encouraging, and always so inspiring to be in a shared space with like-minded passionate people. Our foster families’ souls were replenished, and Josiah White’s Indy/Greenwood team thoroughly enjoyed being able to be a part of this special day!”
We are grateful we had the opportunity to further our ongoing relationship with ITOWN church by collaborating on this conference!
