Want to make a difference in the life of a child in foster care, but don’t know where to start? Find your next step at the Defend Conference. Learn more about what volunteer opportunities are available to serve children in foster care, what adoption looks like, and how you can be a voice to “defend the cause of the fatherless” in your community.
In attendance will be several agencies, such as the SC Foster Parent Association, Christian Family Services, the Children’s Attention Home, the Heart Gallery and so many more. The speaker line up will feature agency representatives and families sharing their story and how you can help.
