Hope for the Journey Conference
Formerly ETC Conference
The Hope for the Journey Conference includes the Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) model for caring well for children impacted by adoption and foster care. The conference provides helpful information for parents and all caregivers meeting the everyday needs of children.
City Life Church and Cultivating Families also encourage participation by church or faith community staff and volunteers because when your community becomes trauma-informed, you are making a commitment to pursue hope, healing, and restoration through implementing compassionate, supportive policies and practices. You can start by attending this conference. The Hope for the Journey Conference is Christian-based. However, the information shared in modules 1-4, based on the foundational principles of TBRI, is invaluable to all parents, caregivers, and communities of faith.
