Darcie Van Voorst

Darcie Van Voorst has been working with children and families for over 17 years in a variety of roles such as working in a teen residential center, being an in-home counselor, a tracking officer, and a school liaison officer; but it was adopting two older children from the foster care system over 13 years ago that truly ignited her passion and understanding in how to help children heal from hard experiences. Darcie has done extensive research and has received substantial training on issues related to children, their families, and communities which has equipped her to provide trainings and collaboration for parents, professionals, and schools across the Midwest. From a personal and professional perspective, Darcie offers hope for lasting change through educating, empowering, and equipping others on how to help children overcome the challenges they are facing.
