We often hear about the lack of good resources available in the world of adoption, which is why we try to keep an eye on what’s out there.
There are two great seminars coming up from the North American Council on Adoptable Children (NACAC) on key topics for adoptive and foster parents:
Adoption Assistance Benefits and Eligibility
Wednesday, March 12 from 2pm-3:15pm EST
Learn the basics of adoption assistance for children adopted from foster care, including eligibility, benefits, taxes, and more. This workshop is designed for both prospective parents seeking to learn more about the support available for the children they adopt and parents who are seeking an adjustment due to a change in their child’s need or circumstances.
Advocating for Adoption Assistance
Wednesday, March 26 from 2pm-3:15pm EST
Learn how to advocate for adoption assistance programs in your state or province. In these tight financial times, legislators sometimes seek to cut adoption assistance programs and advocates need to be ready to respond. Even if your adoption assistance program is not under threat, proactive advocacy can help maintain and even enhance these important benefits for children who have special needs.
NACAC promotes and supports permanent families for children and youth in the U.S. and Canada who have been in care—especially those in foster care and those with special needs.
The South Carolina Heart Gallery Foundation supports the work of the South Carolina Heart Gallery, which is a collaborative program administered and supported by the Children’s Foster Care Review Board, Office of the Governor and the South Carolina Department of Social Services.
