The Orphan Care Expo committee of PCC is inviting adoption, foster care, counseling, mentoring, tutoring, family and orphan support agencies from the Richmond and Hampton Roads areas to participate. The Expo is primarily an educational forum for people to learn about the services your agency provides. Register now to reserve your spot!

We invite agencies to host exhibit tables where expo attendees can pick up materials and ask questions. If your agency would like to participate please fill out the registration form below. Your agency information will be listed on our website so event attendees can check out the available agencies ahead of time. There is a $15.00 fee to register your organization for an exhibit table. This fee is waved for agencies attending for the first time.

We are also offering exhibitors the opportunity to present a 50-minute breakout session.

Possible topics include:

Adoption 101 (a basic road map of the process)
Waiting (for those waiting for a child or with a placement)
Orphans and missions | Healing the orphaned heart
