Why Attend

The Conference is an opportunity for Indiana to demonstrate its capacity to serve, protect and support children when family and extended family are not there to meet their needs.  In a time when children's issues are front and center, it is important that all in the child serving community demonstrate the willingness to reach beyond traditional means and find new and better ways to care for children.
