Family Advocacy Ministry (FAM) is for families who have chosen to grow in unique ways like adoption, foster care, kinship care, or guardianship. This choice can be daunting and overwhelming. Discovery Church offers meaningful support to each family through the creation of a Care Community group that serves them in specific ways. 50% of families who choose to foster a child drop out within the first year. With support from a few others, the drop out rate falls to less than 5%!
When a Care Community group provides practical and meaningful support to the family, they contribute security and sense of permanence to the vulnerable child. Everyone can do something!
