Training Up Conference

The Training Up Conference provides encouragement and tools to help people thrive when caring for kids from hard places. Each year we gather top experts from around the region to share their knowledge on trauma, sensory and emotional processing issues, TBRI, attachment, prayer and more to equip foster and adoptive parents, social workers, school staff, counselors, advocates and extended family members as they "train up" healthy kids.

Standing up for Kids & families

Want to make a difference for kids & families in our community but need to know where to start?

Standing Up for Kids & Families is an annual outreach expo designed to help the faith-based community engage with local organizations who are serving at-risk kids and families.  Connect with 40+ agencies and non-profits plus stop by our on-site service stations to donate a backpack or stuffed animal, color a birthday card for a child in foster care or pray for caregivers and social workers in our region. 


This family-friendly, FREE event also includes food trucks, music, prizes, outdoor games and a Kids Fun Zone with performances, activities, and superheros.

A Night to celebrate

This signature Alliance event is an appreciation dessert for the regional leaders and member organizations we partner with. A Night to Celebrate allows us to come together annually and honor leaders who are making a difference for kids and families in the Greater Sacramento Area while also highlight the programs and services each organization has to offer. Leaders walk away encouraged to continue the work they do and ideas of ways to partner with other Alliance members for greater impact.

Kids & Families SUmmit

Kids & Families Summit is designed to educate the faith-based community on current issues affecting kids and families and inspire individuals and churches to get involved. ​Regional leaders in different sectors including prison care, homeless ministry, human trafficking efforts, education, bullying, teen pregnancy, foster care and transitional age youth will share their insights on both the gaps in current systems as well as why we need to take a serious look at the issue of broken families before we can start seeing true transformation in our region. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with our Regional Alliance team and connect with our member organizations who could use help as they work on the front lines meeting the needs of local kids and families.
