Upcoming Post Adoption Resource Center Events

 

Each month, Post Adoption Resource Center staff plan events that will provide adoptive families with opportunities to meet and connect. All Post Adoption Resource Center events are free for families with finalized adoptions (and members of their immediate household), unless otherwise stated.

Families are asked to complete an Event Waiver & Release prior to any event with a higher risk level (ie swimming, bounce houses, etc.). Waivers will be available at each event; however, if you prefer to fill out the waiver ahead of time, please print, complete, and bring the waiver with you and give to the PARC representative.
