FAMILY ADVOCACY MINISTRIES
Hope Multiplies equips churches to create much-needed support for vulnerable children and those caring for them. We call these support systems Family Advocacy Ministries (FAMs).
WHAT ARE FAMS?
It takes faith, time, money, and emotion to prioritize at-risk kids and their families. We’re grateful when a church partner decides to make this investment to care for vulnerable children, and we want to do all we can to help push forward their mission. To alleviate the stress and confusion that can come with creating any new ministry, we’ve created a step-by–step model called Family Advocacy Ministries (FAMs).
Churches are often full of people who want to make a positive impact in the lives of vulnerable children, but don’t always know how. We believe if churches are empowered to openly and effectively share about the problems at-risk children are experiencing, families will step up, either by becoming a foster or adoptive family or by deciding to support a family in crisis. They simply need a plan. Hope Multiplies implements FAMs to help bring about a positive impact in the lives of vulnerable children by:
• Recruiting and equipping families to care for at-risk kids
• Serving foster families, adoptive families, and biological families in crisis
• Advocating on behalf of families and vulnerable children
• Ministering to families and meeting physical, emotional, and spiritual needs
