Fostering is a tough job.
Without support, it can feel nearly impossible to continue. In fact, the national average of families who continue fostering after their first year is about 50%, but when supported by a The Advocate Mission Family Advocacy Ministry (FAMs) and its Care Communities, 90% continue fostering into a second year.

The Advocate Mission equips churches to:
- Raise awareness around the needs of vulnerable children
- Help prevent children from going into foster care by supporting biological families in need
- Recruit and equip foster & adoptive families
- Create Care Communities for those caring for at-risk kids
We call this model Family Advocacy Ministries (FAMs). Ultimately, our hope is to see every child in a safe, loving family, forever. FAMs help us get closer to this goal by creating support systems for foster & adoptive families, and biological families in crisis. Learn more about FAMs and ways to get involved
