How The Idea Started

A collaborative effort between organizations that care deeply about child welfare workers.

In 2021, a group of foster care organizations gathered to discuss collaboration. During the conversation, a big idea emerged to coordinate our efforts to serve child welfare offices across the country. The following year, we worked together to launch the first National Hospitality Week!

We rolled out in October of 2022 in tandem with National First Responders Day (October 28th). The Contingent partnered with Congregations for Kids and facilitated opportunities for 20 organizations to provide hospitality to child welfare workers in 18 states across the country.

With the help of a generous donation, we are excited to take National Hospitality Week to the next level in 2023!

Will you join us in in providing opportunities for the community to show up with unexpected and creative expressions of radical love-in-action?
