Meet Rachael Bowen, Heartland for Children's new Recruitment Specialist. We are happy to welcome Racheal to our team!
Rachael is a former HFC foster parent and brings an exciting and dynamic work/life history to her new position.
On June 26th, the first QPI Mini Conference was held in Lakeland, FL at Polk State College. Attendees, including case managers, protective investigators, Guardian Ad Litems, foster parents, children's legal services and many more were invited to learn about the Quality Parenting Initiative and the "re-branding" of the foster care system at these two mini-sessions. Each conference culminated in an awards ceremony. Below are each session's award winners!
Ashley Beckwith was a constant source of information and support during the two years and five months of our adoption journey. My husband and I completed the Adoption 101 (now MAPS) class in 2012. Ashley stayed in touch and available to us through the adoption newsletter and checking in via email. She was present at match meetings and adoption events. We finalized our adoption a month ago. I am finally a mother and I feel so thankful and blessed to have been able to work with Ashley through this process. Ashley, you are so dedicated and positive. It was a pleasure to work with you.
