WE Equip churches
We recruit local churches to become champions for families by educating them on the need to support families after children have been placed in their homes.
Many churches are doing the important work of helping their congregants understand the plight of foster and orphaned children. We encourage churches to back-up this call with ongoing support.
Let us equip you to serve foster, adoptive, and kinship families in your community.
8 Week Online Family Strengthening Series:
Finally Home will host a series just for your families that will build both skills and relationships. These are LIVE one-hour discussions facilitated by Finally Home’s certified instructors, that include handouts, and follow up family practice activities. This engaging training is interactive and based on Finally Home’s “Survival Skills for Foster, Adoptive, and Kinship Family” curriculum. This is a great way to launch or enhance your orphan care ministry.
Your cost: $750
Instructor Training: Finally Home can train your instructors to facilitate this program. Instructor certification is good for three years and applies to online discussions and in person events as described below.
Cost per certified instructor is $750.
Finally Home’s curriculum is psychoeducational and research-based. It qualifies in most areas for foster and adoptive parent licensing hours. Please request permission from your local Department of Human and Family Services. Finally Home will provide substantiating information upon request.
24 Month In-Person Family Strengthening Program:
Our most successful and proven model is a five-hour Family Strengthening Event (9am-2pm). We recommend providing two Saturday events per year. That is four total events in 24 months with optional in-person or virtual small group gatherings. Invite ten to twenty-five families to a fun-filled day of support and training. This popular and attractive schedule gives parents a break to learn and connect with other adults, while their kids have a great time in SuperHero Academy and FH Teens. They will enjoy the social and educational opportunities provided throughout this highly organized day created with them in mind. After your first 24 months, you may repeat the program or purchase additional curriculum and schedules.
Send 3-5 leaders to a two-day training where they learn how to set up and manage the Finally Home Family Strengthening Program for the families in their church and community. Training includes Finally Home’s comprehensive Program Manual, along with SuperHero Academy & Finally Home Teen curricula for first four event.
Cost: $250/person for your first three leaders, additional $50/person
Support the Whole family
The Little Cloud - Children's Book:
Kalia Orphan was adopted into her family when she was twelve months old. She loves to express herself through music and creative writing. She wrote "The Little Cloud" when she was 15 years old. She hopes this book will be an encouragement to people of all ages that even on the grayest days, something beautiful can grow.
Encouragement from the Heart Family Devotional:
The call to foster care and adoption is a beautiful mess. It is a mix of every day miracles, disappointments and breathtaking grace. It gives us a glimpse into the heart of a Father who chose us before time and sacrificed himself, before we were able or willing to acknowledge our need for him, let alone return his love.
Encouragement from the Heart is a collection of short scripture-based devotional readings meant to remind you that God is always speaking. His Word is alive and able to challenge, correct and comfort like nothing else.
