Adoptive Family Education

In addition to the training required for families in the adoption process, we also offer additional workshops and classes that are a great resource for adoptive families.

Professional Education

Our experienced, professional staff is dedicated to educating the community and other health and human service professionals about adoption and working with individuals experiencing unplanned pregnancy. To schedule a professional training, contact us at



We can give specialized educational trainings to your hospital staff, pregnancy resource center, school, church pastoral team or other organization.



Many of our adoption and parenting workshops offer CEUs to social workers. See our events page for upcoming opportunities and to register for an event near you.


Adoption Info Presentation

Does your church or group want to learn more about domestic or international adoption? We'd love to share about our work and the children who need families.

Counseling and Therapy

Holt-Sunny Ridge offers adoption-competent therapy and counseling to adoptive parents, birth parents, families and adoptees of all ages. These services are available to everyone, whether or not your adoption was facilitated through Holt-Sunny Ridge.

If you need free unplanned pregnancy support, we're available day or night.
