How to Be a Welcoming Church for Special Needs Foster & Adoptive Families

As special needs and older child programs are on the rise, this means being prepared to accommodate families affected by disability or complex trauma. Shannon Dingle will share five ways your church can be a safe place for these children and teens, drawing from experience as a special educator, a disability ministry leader, and a mom to six by birth and adoption.
