WE Equip churches
We recruit local churches and community groups to become champions for families.
Many churches and agencies are doing the important work of helping people understand the plight of foster and orphaned children.
Here are the ways Finally Home can equip your teams:
1 Day Family Strengthening Event Leadership Training ($200/person. Discount provided for 4 or more.)
Finally Home has been successfully providing Whole Family Strengthening Events since 2008. Our unique and popular 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 enjoy the social and educational opportunities provided throughout this highly organized day created with them in mind. Leaders who attend this one-day training will learn how to set up and manage a Finally Home Family Strengthening Event for the families in their church and community.

Emotions Toolkits for Kids and Teens
Children who have experienced trauma often feel big emotions. The first step in being able to safely work through overwhelming emotions is to name them. We created the Finally Home Emotions Toolkit for parents to help their children correctly identify their emotions and establish calming strategies. Our kit contains eight different concrete items that assist children in emotional regulation. (English and Spanish)
Family Emotions Bible Study
Emotions are a gift from God designed to be gauges, not guides. This Bible study is a tool to help parents, children, and teens learn about what the Bible says about emotions. Emotions that are covered are fear, loneliness, tiredness, anxiousness, sadness, and joyfulness.
Map for Healthy Families, 5 Week Small Group Series
In this 5-week small group series, families will learn about the building blocks of a healthy house.” Our “healthy house” is made up of the patterns and skills that show up in healthy families. Through short animations, worksheets, video teaching, and interactive conversations, families learn what it takes to grow in each of these areas. Use it in your support group, neighborhood, or church. (English and Spanish)
