*On April 5-6, BCF is the host site for the The Empowered to Connect Conference, which features practical teaching in a safe and supportive community to equip families, churches, and professionals to better serve children impacted by adoption and foster care.

The Empowered to Connect Conference features practical teaching in a safe and supportive community as we work to equip families, churches, and professionals to better serve children impacted by adoption and foster care.

It features Trust-Based Relational Intervention ® (TBRI ® )methods developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross from the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development (KPICD) at TCU, to help bring attachment and connection in families. The content is ideal for adoptive and foster parents, those considering adoption or foster care, and those who are serving and supporting others, including social workers, agency professionals, church staff and ministry leaders, counselors, and therapists.

The two-day conference will be simulcast live on Friday, April 5, and Saturday, April 6, from Fort Worth, TX.

*Meals and childcare will be provided. There will be no cost to attend but registration is required. For more information, contact Lise Martin at lmartin@depaulcr.org or Oma McReynolds at omcreynolds@depaulcr.org or call 540.381.1848.
