KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Kevin Campbell

The Family Finding model, developed by Kevin Campbell, offers methods and strategies to locate and engage relatives of children currently living in out-of-home care. The goal of Family Finding is to connect each child with a family, so that every child may benefit from the lifelong connections that only a family provides.

Kevin Campbell will talk about;

·       Every child has a family, and they can be found if we try

·       Loneliness can be devastating, even dangerous, and is experienced by most children in out of home care

·       A meaningful connection to family helps a child develop a sense of belonging, and

·       The single factor most closely associated with positive outcomes for children is meaningful, lifelong connections to family
