Better
Together Conference

haiti-vector-country-map-outline-2JME7HE

Serving CHildren by Strengthening Families

Now, more than ever, those of us working with children, youth and families in Haiti need one another. Together we can strive to find ways to remain committed in a country struggling under a heavy burden of conflict.

 

The Better Together conference will provide a dedicated space and time to convene, share and learn over two and half days in Nashville. Workshops will be focused on topics related to supporting children in families with special emphasis on the complexity of the current context. In addition to workshops, there will be plenty of time dedicated to connecting and growing relationships.

July 20-22, 2023   Nashville, TN
