Our Strategy - Fostering Family Ministies

Our Strategy

We inspire and equip churches to raise up at least one foster family with a team of support friends until there are more than enough families to meet the need.


Church Champions

Each Church Champion promotes foster care ministry in their local church. In partnership with Fostering Family, they will raise awareness, recruit foster families & volunteers as well as train volunteers in their ministry. Volunteers will form care communities around the foster families serving them in many ways.
