What is Welcoming Children Home?

The purpose of this annual Central Coast Orphan Care Conference is to motivate and inform Christians of both the Biblical call and the needs of orphans. This conference is for everyone! Those interested in foster care and adoption; those with adopted or foster kids looking for more support and training; and those who are wanting to care for orphans globally and domestically but not called to adopt.

Something for Everyone- In addition to three General Sessions we will be offering a wide variety of breakout sessions
