If each church would come alongside one family to foster a child, there would be more than enough families for vulnerable children. Opening your home, providing support, or donating financially are ways we can all help foster a child.
Every year thousands of children are removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect. Entering foster care can dramatically increase the risks in the lives of vulnerable children.
of human trafficking victims spent time in foster care
of inmates in several states aged out of foster care
of foster youth become homeless within 18 months of emancipation
of women become pregnant of within one year of aging out of foster care
These children deserve stable and loving homes. The church is uniquely equipped and called to be the place where they become beloved sons and daughters. “God sets the lonely in families.” Psalm 68:6
If every church raised one foster family and care team of support, there would be a long list of homes waiting for children rather than children waiting for homes.
FFM provides training and ongoing support to lay leaders within your church who desire to care for families in foster care by leading care teams of supportive friends and effective tools for providing trauma competent care.
