The Floyd County Foster Parent Association (FPA) is gaining momentum once again with in-person gatherings. The FPA meets on the second Monday of each month from 6-8 PM at Restoration Rome. We welcome our Promise Partner Churches wanting to provide a meal for foster parents and the children in their homes. We also have a need for onsite childcare during the evening. To sign up to provide a meal for the gathering or volunteer for childcare, please CLICK HERE.
In order to achieve this vision of More Than Enough, Promise Partners need 3 key tools:
Promise Training: Individuals within a church body who are passionate about serving and facilitating ministry alongside local foster, adoptive, kinship, and birth families are trained as Advocates. An Advocate or Advocate Team within a congregation is educated, equipped, and empowered to develop a Ministry Action Plan (MAP) that guides how their congregants will serve, given their specific gifts and talents. As leaders of Family Advocacy Ministry efforts, Advocates serve as the primary connection and communication point between a congregation and Restoration Rome and represent their church at bi-annual Promise Partner meetings.
Meet The Need (MTN): In order to improve communication of needs and opportunities throughout our community, the MTN database is offered as a free digital platform that can become a seamless part of a church’s website. In addition to communicating resource needs of foster, adoptive, kinship, birth, and at-risk families and children, MTN provides volunteers interested in serving with the ability to scan for opportunities in our community that are a ‘fit’ and keep a record of their service throughout the year.
Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®): As churches welcome and serve children and families in need, it is imperative that congregants are equipped to compassionately and competently serve and support them, so that The Church is a source of hope and deep healing that ultimately points them to Christ. This requires trauma-informed training that provides children’s and youth ministry volunteers, leaders, and staff with a trauma-informed lens and practical tools to serve well those impacted by trauma. Trainings in TBRI® and related materials are offered at Restoration Rome and supportive tools are provided to churches.
