What if the retreat doesn’t fit my budget?We strive to keep our retreat as economically priced as possible to accommodate every mom who needs to come. Your $185 registration fee includes 2 nights lodging, 5 meals, and all retreat materials. If that is simply not in your budget here are a few ideas:
- Use SWAN (State Wide Adoption Network) Post Adoption Funds If you are an adoptive family in PA, there are respite funds available to you. Respite doesn’t need to mean that your kids go away, it can mean you do. Contact SWAN at 1-800-585-7926 to request respite services. You can choose the agency you want to work with or allow SWAN to choose it for you. There are many great agencies you can work with. Previous attendees attest to the ease of working with Bethany Christian Services and Pressley Ridge post adoption services for financing the retreat. Feel free to use whomever you prefer.More information can be found here.
- A limited number of partial scholarships are available through our ministry. If you need a scholarship, and SWAN funds don’t apply for you, we invite you to email us to discuss your needs.
- Want to help provide a scholarship for another mom attending? Feel free to make a donation to our ministry. (Designate your gift to the “Wexford Campus” with the sub category, “OrphanCare”.) We are committed to providing support for every part of the adoption/foster care journey. We’ll steward your gift to support families.
