We're excited to see you at our next Virtual Camp!
June 11-13, 2021.
The camp theme for June is "Tell me who I am: Free and Liberated???"
Registration is open from now until May 28! See the REGISTER for June Camp button below to sign up today.
EVOLVE Family Services' virtual camp is designed to strengthen the bond of families who are parenting African American children and youth through foster care, kinship care, or adoption.
Join us for a virtual weekend retreat and education event that includes parent and youth workshops, round-table discussions about culture, identity, family and unity, and so much more!
We will be celebrating the African American holiday of Juneteenth as our freedom day and also exploring what it will take for African Americans to be truly free and liberated today.
Examples of workshop topics include: The Importance of Raising Race Conscious Children, Financial Literacy for Youth, Speculative Fiction and African Americans, World History, More than an Ally, Do It Yourself Beauty Hacks and Ideas, Black English, Transracial Adoption, Cooking, Culture-Specific Therapies and more!

John and Lisa strongly encourage other transracial adoptive, foster care, and relative-kin families to participate in UMOJA MN because it not only gave them resources and knowledge of black history and culture to help empower their son Parker, it also helped them create their own support network and community as they continue their journey.
