14th Annual APAC Permanency Conference (Virtual)

Tuesday, September 15, 202010:15 amFriday, September 18, 202011:45 am

APAC coordinates an annual statewide Permanency Conference in collaboration with the Alabama Department of Human Resources to bring 3 days of focused training on meeting the range of needs of foster and adopted children and their families. This conference is geared for anyone who serves foster and adopted children in any capacity and is perfect for DHR staff, service providers and clinicians, as well as foster and adoptive parents.

The purpose is to provide a rich experience where participants can take part in relevant, engaging, and practical workshops to help participants feel more prepared, confident, and hopeful for the work they do. We strive to provide this conference in a manner that will maximize the chances of people to feel appreciated and re-energized as they return to serving our most vulnerable populations.
