Come Join Us!
The 45th Annual PSRFA Conference is set for September 30-October 1, 2021 at the Red Lion Hotel, Harrisburg, Pa. This year’s theme is Nurturing Children by Strengthening Families.
The conference will open with a luncheon on Thursday, October 30th. Our keynote speaker this year will be Michael Sanders, as a motivational speaker, consultant, trainer, and facilitator, he has been referred to as the Teen Whisperer for his ability to understand, relate to and connect with teens. Even though he is considered an expert when it comes to teen issues, he simply considers himself just a FAN of teens! He will be joined by: Adrian M. McLemore a program assistant with the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Child Welfare Strategy Group (CWSG) and Jamole Callahan a Child welfare trainer.
The conference registration fee includes 8 hours of training, refreshments at breaks, six meals, and networking with other resource families throughout Pennsylvania.
Five separate workshops are scheduled for Thursday afternoon through Friday. There will be some informative new classes this year.
Thursday night’s dinner will be an opportunity for all to sit back and relax. After dinner, join us for the Annual Silent Benefit Auction for the PSRFA Scholarship Fund. Proceeds from the auction are the major sources of funds that PSRFA uses to provide scholarships to graduating seniors who are foster, adoptive, or biological children of foster parents.
We are always looking for auction items, so please feel free to bring some goodies with you when you come to the conference. We know that you will enjoy the conference and we are looking forward to seeing all of you there.
Kathleen Ramper, Executive Director
