All presentations and panel discussions from the May 18, 2022 West Virginia “All In Foster Care Summit” are now available online.
The Summit, a Chestnut Mountain Village event, was held at Chestnut Ridge Church in Morgantown and attended by church leaders from throughout West Virginia. The Mountain State has the nation’s highest per capita rate of children in foster care. The Summit was an invitation for attendees to be part of a church-led West Virginia foster care movement to bring new ideas and practices to the state.
The All In Foster Care Summit featured national and state child welfare leaders who helped attendees:
- Understand West Virginia’s urgent foster care situation;
- See how the church is uniquely positioned to make a difference;
- Learn practical ways to care for children & families in foster/kinship care; and
- Begin to transform foster care in their communities.
Thank you to everyone who attended and to all those behind the scenes who made the Summit successful!!
