People want to care, yet often feel overwhelmed in the complexities of caring for children & families in crisis.
With the launch of CarePortal, it is important that all participating churches, agencies and their communities have access to excellent ongoing training, resources & supports.
CareWell Academy is facilitated by a collaborative of experienced Canadian Christian professionals (social workers, educators, and therapists) and partnering organizations who are passionate about equipping Canadians to care well for children and families with challenges. Customized training is available for churches, professionals, schools, camps, and parents. Training and resources are available for both faith and non-faith contexts.
