The journey of adoption and fostering is not one that can be traveled alone. OCA Connect is an opportunity for foster and adoptive parents to journey together by meeting monthly for support and encouragement.  Each meeting is led by a professional that guides the discussion and creates a safe community for sharing stories and offering encouragement. Don’t face your parenting challenges alone.

Check out our trainings and events page to discover an OCA Connect group that best fits your schedule. Stay supported throughout the month by joining the group on Facebook.  Childcare is provided at all meetings.

For more information regarding our Connect Groups please contact Stacia Washausen.
