Join us as Elevating Connections Executive Director Stacey Sanders teaches us about the importance of maintaining a sibling relationship for children in care. Stacey's passion for the importance of the sibling bond inspired her to launch her non-profit.

About Elevating Connections:

Elevating Connections was created so we can offer our kids a permanent connection with their siblings and their community after they turn 18 and leave foster care. We offer Connecting Events throughout the year to give our siblings more opportunities to connect with each other, our volunteers, and our community. The sibling relationship is cradle to grave and we need to do everything we can to support the sibling bond.

We decided that our kids who emancipate from foster care without returning home or without a finding a permanent home need a place to come to feel connected to their community. Our future plan is our Elevating Youth program that will be based out of a community coffee shop that will give our youth a place to learn job skills; find resources for housing, jobs, and school; learn life skills; have a place to share their talents, such as their music, art, and poetry; and where they can always come for acceptance, support, and a safe place to land no matter how old they are.

This is a free event. Childcare provided. 2 training hours will be earned.
