Foster & Adopt Parent Training | Raising Children of Color: The Crucial Conversation

Tuesday, July 28 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Taylors Campus, 2701 Wade Hampton Blvd
Greenville, SC 29615 United States

There are both hard and beautiful parts of parenting within transracial families! Many foster and adoptive parents are ready to receive a child into their home with open arms. But what happens next? When the child you receive is a different ethnicity than you are, there are many things to learn. We want to help bridge that learning gap for parents through this training. Join Brenda and Toney Parks, as they share stories, answer questions, and pass along practical advice for transracial families. Dr. Toney Parks has served for more than 25 years as Pastor of Mt. Sinai Baptist Church and as a community leader in Greenville County. Brenda has nearly 40 years in Child Welfare Services, having served most of those years working with families adopting from Foster Care at SCDSS Region I Adoption. She currently serves as the Director of Foster Care for Miracle Hill Ministries.

Register through July 27 (9pm) or until we reach maximum social-distancing capacity for the meeting space.

Foster & Adopt Parent Training | Online | Sexual Abuse

Thursday, August 13 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

As a parent, hearing a disclosure - a child telling you that someone has abused or hurt him/her - can be scary for the parent or childcare provider. Many thoughts may run through your mind. You may be worried about the child and yourself, unsure of how to respond or what to say. Responding to a disclosure of abuse or neglect is a big responsibility. Join us for this training as Trina Sherman, Education Specialist at The Julie Valentine Center in Greenville, shares about the signs of abuse and ways to talk with children about abuse. Registration is open through August 13. If you have any questions, please contact Beth Drake at [email protected]
