Compelled to Care began as a group of 10 parents so we believe in the importance of small groups. We host in-person and virtual meet-ups.

Our conversation is honest and often not for kids. Please join us from a space in your home that is away from your kids old enough to understand. We love kids and enjoy saying "hi" to them, but this is a kid-free time.

I love checking in every week to see how everyone's week is going.

LIVE @ 8:30

Join Ashley & Nick from their home as they go LIVE every Thursday night @ 8:30pm to shout out people in our community doing awesome things, make announcements about upcoming events, share a devotional thought and sometimes interview guests.

This is an interactive conversation where viewers comments are shared on the screen so that you can join the conversation.

Join us in the Compelled to Care Community Facebook group. A notification should just pop-up on your phone.

When we do interviews we also stream on the Compelled to Care page and in the We Foster Wa - Becoming a foster parent group.

This feels like being apart of a fun webinar every week that I actually get to join the conversation and not just watch.
