An Agency Transformation
Bethany Christian Services has long been known as the largest adoption agency in the US. Join us at this Monday Evening Speaker Series presentation to learn about their commitment to transformation. They admit: “We must come to grips that we have not been the best at elevating the voice of the Adopted Person. We know better, therefore we must do better.” Our speaker Donna Nicholson, will discuss questions such as: What are we changing? Why are we changing? What has prompted this change? What is our position statement? What have been the struggles and triumphs as Bethany pivots?
