We're going virtual!

Register for your Digital Pass | Sessions Available October 1 - 31

All Access. All Digital.

This year, we come to you.

Our world has changed. But for many children, nothing has changed.

We believe every child deserves a loving family. Thornwell’s Foster Care Conference is designed to equip and empower current and potential foster care parents, those who support them, and those in the community who are eager to help. Traditionally held in Upstate South Carolina, where some of the greatest need for foster homes is felt right now, we’ve decided to take our conference virtual this year.

We’re thrilled to offer a safe and flexible option for attending care, our Foster Care Conference. This year’s conference features powerful messages and useful information to empower and equip any individual, organization, or community interested in serving children in foster care.
