The Shoulder to Shoulder Conference is a multi-disciplinary conference that provides professional training to establish cross-system dialogue and collaboration and to build stronger partnerships on behalf of children in the child welfare system.
We invite foster and adoptive parents, kinship caregivers, advocates, caseworkers, social workers, lawyers, judicial officers, citizen review board members (CRB), mental health professionals, medical professionals, educators, child care worker and anyone else who is connected with Child Welfare to attend the conference.

The conference planning committee is comprised of statewide community partners from the child welfare and child abuse prevention fields. Shoulder to Shoulder is an all-volunteer planned conference without permanent funding sources. We rely on community partners and collaborations to operate because we know the need for quality cross-system training and dialogue is high. See our Sponsor page for a full list of the community partners.
