A.S.K. Announces New Meeting Locations and Times
The new year is starting off as a busy one for the TRC's Adoption Support for Kentucky (A.S.K.) program. We have recently welcomed three new Adoptive Parent Liaisons who have jumped right in and are helping offer support to resource parents in their service region. This has allowed A.S.K. to branch out and provide additional monthly meetings along with reviving groups in some areas.
Several families have demonstrated a need for meetings in the southern portion of the Southern Bluegrass service region. We are proud to announce we now have a meeting in Nicholasville! A.S.K. currently offers 36 monthly meetings statewide in an effort provide peer-led support and training to Kentucky's adoptive and foster parents. The most recent changes and additions to our schedule are reflected below. For a complete listing of support groups, click here.
