Our annual Sheltered Conference is for those who are seeking to provide the best quality of care for survivors! Whether you are new to the field of residential care, or have been serving survivors for decades, this is the event for you!

Sheltered Virtual 2021 had over 60 leading experts in the field present about applicable practices, share relevant findings, and provide YOU with resources so that we can rise by lifting others.

Sheltered Virtual Conference was a success! Check out some of the highlights:

And we can't forget the 66 adorable pet photos uploaded to the Whova app of attendees viewing the conference from all across the country alongside their favorite furry companions!

Thank you to our incredible sponsors!
