COPARC is proud to announce Adam Robe as keynote speaker for the 2013 Spotlight Conference:
Adam Robe, MSW, a former foster child and adoptee, is the CEO for Foster Care Alumni of America. He began his child welfare work volunteering as a CASA and quickly found his calling in social work. He then worked as a behavioral health tech for a residential treatment center while putting himself through college where he earned a BS in Social Work from Central Missouri State University. He later went on to earn his MSW from the University of Kansas.
Now, with more than a dozen years in the social work field, he’s helped hundreds of foster children and their families adjust to tough life changes. His experiences range from working as a family-centered service worker in the Children’s Division… to supervising CASAs… to directing foster care programs… serving as a regional director of an adoption and child welfare agency…and teaching at a university.
Determined to help children on a national level, Adam and his wife, Kim authored (and published) several Robbie the Rabbit™ books—a series of children’s stories (and adult guides) designed specifically for foster parents, adoptive parents and/or caseworkers who want to help children in care adjust better to tough changes in life. Adam is also a contributing author to the book, Flux: Life After Foster Care.
Adam is also a national speaker, trainer, and author. You can visit his website at www.fostercareallumni.org or email him at email@example.com.
