What is a Connections Conversation?

Connections Conversations are an opportunity for parents whose children are placed in out of home care and caregivers to meet with the support of peer mentors and talk about the needs of the child.  The goal of these meetings is to ease the transition and reduce the trauma experienced by the child, as well as build ongoing child-centered partnerships.
