[January 27 Networking Reception]
Whole Child Initiative defines caregiver as any individual responsible for the care of a child. A caregiver can be a biological, adoptive, or foster parent, or anyone striving to meet the needs of a child. Whole Child Conference aims to encourage, educate, and equip caregivers with the training and support needed to minister to the whole child. The conference will focus on the four key areas of the Whole Child Initiative: physical, emotional, educational, and spiritual.
“Whole Child Initiative is a simple way to look more closely at the children we love. It’s not enough to feed and house them- that’s obvious- but we are exploring how to understand who they are and how we can help them. If we ask good questions, we will discover strengths to build on and identify opportunities for development. This conference introduces how to do this, and its my hope that people will leave better equipped to proactively impact the lives children.”
Drake Bassett, CEO ChildX.
Whole Child Conference was developed with one goal in mind – to strengthen caregivers. In a relaxed environment, attendees will hear from influential speakers, gain insights on helpful resources, and enjoy the fellowship of other caregivers in the community.
