Free for Adoptive, Foster and Kinship Parents

Join us for this free gathering of parent support group leaders and members, where parents will talk about ways to connect with others and share experiences.

In addition, Nim Tottenham, Ph.D, Professor of Psychology at Columbia University, will discuss the importance of peer connections and look at “brain architecture” in terms of identity and trauma.

The goal is to bring adoptive parents, foster parents and relative caregivers together for a morning of discussion to share concerns, provide training and connect with one another locally.

Bring the kids! Free childcare will be available for pre-registered children ages five and up.  The Coalition’s Youth Programming Coordinator will lead  youths in the Express Yourself art program.

A  light breakfast  of bagels, muffins, fruit and beverages will be available.

Certificates verifying training hours available for foster parents upon request.

Contact Amy Drayer, Director of Foster, Kinship and Parent Group Services at 646.688.4321  or through email at amy@affcny.org with any questions.
