Keynote Speakers

We are very excited about our keynote speakers for the 2017 conference! 

Chadwick Sapenter

Every one of us has the opportunity to change a life, to make an impact, and alter the trajectory of a person’s life. In this inspirational talk Chadwick shares his personal story of grief, abuse, homelessness, abandonment, nearly being murdered twice, raising his siblings, and entering the foster care system. He takes his audience into the depths of his pain and shares how one person used four little words (YOU CAN DO IT) that changed his life. Audiences are equipped to more effectively engage with their constituents and inspired to overcome the adversity in their life.

Kyle Hutton

Kyle Hutton shares stories and songs written from the front lines of the foster care experience. Hutton, an adoptee and foster parent, has a unique perspective and sheds light on many of the emotions and situations found in the foster world. Insights on challenges facing foster parents, the plight of foster children, and the role of the community will all be discussed during this informative and entertaining session.

DFPS Commissioner Hank Whitman, Assistant Commissioner of CPS, Kristene Blackstone and Assistant Commission of RCCL Jean Shaw

The DFPS executive team will provide an assessment of 85th legislative session, as well as current initiatives underway at the agency that impact the Texas child welfare provider community.
