SUPPORT GROUPS

Coffee Talk

Our support group for Foster and Adoptive moms meets on the last Tuesday of every month at 7:30 pm. Please visit our events page to confirm where we will be meeting this month. This is a very informal gathering for moms or moms-to-be that are adopting or fostering. Moms and moms-to-be are connected to each other in a very meaningful way. We share a common bond, and talking with other women who in some way or another have been touched by adoption or fostering has proven to be a great source of encouragement and support.

Dads Eat Meat

If you have ever been interested in being a foster or adoptive dad, or currently are one, please join us for a night of food and fellowship. We eat meat together. We meet the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 6:30 pm. Please visit our events page to confirm where we will be meeting this month.

Real Talk

Real talk is a place to be “real” about the challenges faced when adopting a child with a traumatic background. We know how hard it can be, how lonely and exhausting, and how sustaining it is to talk with others in similar circumstances. Research has shown that groups like this are the number one most helpful resource. In order to respect privacy, meeting place and times are not posted. If you are interested in joining us, e-mail system@heartforthefatherless.com.
