COLORADO SPRINGS FOSTER STORY SLAM
Join us for live foster care storytelling and conversation.
Let’s humanize foster care.
RSVP NOW or BECOME A SPONSOR and help us make children in foster care impossible to ignore.
FOUR STORYTELLERS WILL SHARE FOR SEVEN MINUTES EACH. HEAR FROM:
A person who grew up in foster care
An “informal foster mom,“ taking care of a child in need in her neighborhood
A foster parent who has helped dozens of children heal
A ‘foster grandpa” on how watching his family grow through foster care challenged his assumptions about “good guys” and “bad guys”
OUR PROBLEM: Kids in foster care are mostly invisible to the average person.
OUR SOLUTION: Through storytelling, we start fresh thought patterns, making children impossible to ignore.
OUR GOAL: A whole city of “good people paying attention” to kids who need it most.
AFTER THE STORIES, WE’LL TAKE QUESTIONS & THOUGHTS FROM GUESTS WHILE ENJOYING TREATS FROM NIGHTINGALE BAKERY.
You may also enjoy our Foster Neighbor Training, in February.
We are always looking for people (especially people who grew up in foster care or whose children spent time in foster care) who would like to share a story. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to be considered.
