Virtual Annual Family Conference
November 30 – December 4th, 2020 


NHFNV’s Virtual Annual Family Conference this year will be a very interactive, full of education, fun activities and live zoom sessions event! The idea behind hosting a 5-day virtual event is that families can have the option of joining the sessions live or watch them after at their own time.  Complete the fun family challenges and share pictures with us.  We have a great mix of Adult sessions in English and Spanish, a teen paint party and even a live cooking hour for the whole family!
