From pregnancy to age 5, the most important thing for optimal development is the power of positive relationships. We are a community of many connections and great resilience. This conference will be about how we show up, how we build a culture of belonging, and ways we can strengthen the fabric of our community wellness.

Exciting Keynote Speakers and Interactive Workshops

Our 2-day Summit will include 3 Keynote Presenters – Dr. Tina Bryson, Dr. Robert Sege, and Gaelin Elmore – who have expansive experience in their personal lives and in the fields of Attachment Theory, Neuroscience, and Mental Health.

Who is invited to come?

We’re grateful for the Title IV-E grant funds, which help us provide this Summit and are specifically allocated to providing training and support for professionals who work within Mendocino County organizations that work with foster youth and/or youth who are at-risk of entering the foster care system, which includes social workers, therapists, teachers, pediatricians, counselors, school administrators, etc. If you’re passionate about improving systems of care for children and families and want to be inspired in ways you can make a difference even for one child, we’d love to see you there!
