To activate Family Advocacy Ministries (FAMs), serving over a thousand vulnerable children annually, throughout Montana, via coordinated yet autonomous churches leading in their communities, radically altering the state of child welfare in three years.
WHY JOIN THE MONTANA INITIATIVE?
Approximately 3900 Montana children in foster care stand to gain the most when local churches step up to provide support via resources, volunteers, and families. Additionally, their biological families in crisis will gain strength through relational support.
With your support, we’re aiming to plant FAMs in 10% of Montana churches, creating Christ-centered, child-focused ministries. These FAMs will utilize tools like CarePortal and Promise686 Care Communities to serve local at-risk kids.
This Montana-specific initiative will be led by Promise686, alongside a Montana-based advisory board, until a local nonprofit partner can step in.
The phased launch will require $25,000 (immediate), $64,000 (by March 2021), $200,000 (by Jan. 2022). Angel Armies, a foundation started by Chris and Lauren Tomlin, will match the initial $25,000 given in an effort to strengthen children and families in Montana.
