Equipping and encouraging families through engagement of the church and community

Equipped and encouraged families are successful families.

Parenting can be difficult. Foster families, adoptive families, and families in crisis often find parenting exponentially more difficult. We’re engaging the local church and the Brevard County community to offer support.

Safe, stable families for vulnerable children are our ultimate goal.

You might not be called to foster or adopt, but chances are there is a way that you can support children and families who need the encouragement of their community.

How can your church help?

Wrapping foster and adoptive families in support and stepping in to assist biological families in crisis are intentional and practical ways for your church to fulfill God’s call to care for vulnerable children.

The foster and adoptive families in your congregation and in your neighborhood need your prayers, your encouragement, your help.

Children and families in crisis who live right in your church’s neighborhood need you to step into action in order to help keep their families intact.

Your church can make a difference for these families.
