Foster Family Retreat

Methodist Children’s Home Community Services hosted its 19th Foster Family Retreat this past weekend.

The retreat offered staff the opportunity to provide support and training to foster families, and it is a way of showing gratitude for the many sacrifices foster families make for children and their families throughout the year.

Families enjoyed a cookout, swimming, and ice cream on Friday night. Saturday, Austin Avenue United Methodist Church hosted the training by guest speaker, Susan Fletcher, Ph.D. Susan is a practicing psychologist, author and sought after speaker.

A luncheon followed the training and foster families were recognized for their years of service and exemplifying the MCH Core Values.

Here are some fun photos from the event.
