Every year during C.A.S.E.’s Annual Gala & Silent Auction we recognize at least two C.A.S.E. Stars of Adoption to showcase the resilience and strength of the families we are privileged to serve.
At this year’s gala, we would also like to additionally recognize a therapist who has completed our Training for Adoption Competency (TAC™) and used that experience to transform their practice and better serve adoptive, foster and kinship families.
Submit your nomination via email to: TACStar@adoptionsupport.org
Subject line: TAC Star Nomination by Friday, September 3rd at 5PM EST.
TAC trained mental health professionals may be nominated by a colleague, client, TAC trainer, or staff of a licensed TAC training site. The nomination email must contain:
