Family Design Resources representatives speak at Adoption Support and Preservation National Conference

Two representatives of Family Design Resources Inc. were among the presenters at the Adoption Support and Preservation National Conference, held June 1-2 in Nashville, Tenn.

The national conference gives professionals and leaders in the field of post-adoption services the opportunity to share and discuss effective practice and policy at the state and national levels.

Brenda Lawrence, executive director, was part of a lunch panel presentation, “What’s Working: An Introduction to Thriving Post-Adopt Programs in Pennsylvania, Illinois and Tennessee.” She provided an overview of Pennsylvania’s SWAN post-permanency program model.

That afternoon, Lawrence and Lea Moyer, post-permanency technical assistant, co-presented “Navigating a Difficult Journey,” focused on the challenges associated with the dissolution or disruption of an adoption.

Family Design Resources was one of the national conference sponsors and exhibitors.
