Tapestry is a non-profit that equips and supports adoptive and foster families with the tools and resources they need to meet their child’s unique needs. We strive to develop authentic community with the support of a local church and other partner organizations. It is our goal to help families create places where children feel safe, loved, and welcome.

Our support comes, in part, from families who share our passion about adoption and foster care and believe that the local church should play a unique and critical role in the lives of adoptive and foster families. If you have this same passion and want to help support our ministry financially so that we can continue to provide events and opportunities to connect like this conference, you can DONATE TO TAPESTRY.

What if I register and then need to cancel?

Tapestry is committed to doing all that we do while asking families to pay little or nothing for our events and activities. We need your help to allow us to continue doing this.

If your plans change and you will not be able to attend on Saturday or Friday FOR ANY REASON, we ask that you please email us at info@tapestryministry.org as soon as possible to let us know. This will help us make sure that we do not turn people away or waste money on food and materials that we don’t need.

In addition, we ask that you consider making your payment a donation to Tapestry to help us continue equipping and supporting those caring for vulnerable children. If you require a refund, you must cancel on or before FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2019, and we will issue you a refund (less a $15 administrative charge). All refund payments will be paid by December 31, 2019. Refund requests can be sent to info@tapestryministry.org.

Thanks for helping us out by honoring our cancellation policy.

What if I have food allergies?

We understand that some people have food allergies or sensitivities that need to be accommodated.  However, given the number of people we are expecting for the conference, it will be impossible for us to accommodate special requests.  Therefore, if you have food allergies or sensitivities, please make plans to bring your own food.  Thanks for your help and understanding.

Do you offer foster/adoptive parent training credits?

Most foster and adoptive parents can count attendance at the Tapestry Conference toward their required continuing education training. At the end of the conference, we will provide certificates of attendance as documentation for your agency or DFPS. You can earn 6 hours of training credits on Friday and 6 hours of training credits on Saturday. If you have questions about whether your agency will give credit for the Tapestry Conference, please be sure to check with your agency in advance.

Do you offer CEUs for professionals?

CEU credits will be available for social workers & licensed professional counselors licensed in Texas. We are also able to offer a generic training certificate for other professionals who wish to apply them to ongoing training hours. There are 6 hours available on Friday and up to 6 hours available on Saturday. CEU’s will only be awarded to those who register as a professional.

Will you record the sessions?

We will video and audio record most of the Tapestry Conference sessions. These sessions will be made available for purchase and/or streaming on our website after the conference.

Is childcare available?

Childcare is not available for this conference. Thank you for your understanding.
