Western Wayne/Oakland FCC Region webinar with Kristin Porter: We CAN work together!
March 8 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Monday, March 8, 7:00pm, Western/Oakland Counties FCC Region Zoom meeting presents some latest updates about what’s going on with foster care. Kristin Porter is our new Southwestern Mi. FCC regional coordinator. We enthusiastically thank Jennifer Patrick and Jennifer Nette for their inspiring leadership as our former coordinators.
Kristin will share her vision of ways that faith communities have essential roles in supporting children while they navigate the uncertainties of everyday life and ways to give support. She has some great examples of ways WE CAN work TOGETHER to energize neighbors, family, friends and church members in support of foster families. She will also share about the DHHS Regional Resource Regions and ways they help us connect with the needs of foster families.
Kristin is an adoptive parent and a passionate advocate for children. She works with the Family Enrichment Center as a trainer, recruiter and leader of Fostering Partnerships, an initiative to inspire local faith communities toward support of children and families in the foster care system. Kristin lives in Kalamazoo with her two teenage children. She believes that her work as a foster parent has been the most difficult and the most rewarding experience of her lifetime. https://fosteringpartnerships.com
