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?
Did you know there are more than 3,000 children in foster care throughout our state alone, with the majority of these living in 5 regions of Montana? The children and families walking a child welfare journey often experience one crisis after another, causing further trauma and instability.
Promise686’s Montana Initiative works with local churches to implement Family Advocacy Ministries (FAMs), providing what vulnerable children need most: strong families. By mobilizing church volunteers to serve families in crisis, children are able to experience the care and stability they need.
Currently, the Montana Initiative has over 30 FAMs in two of these five areas, serving more than 80 vulnerable children in 2021 alone. We hope to see active FAMs in all five regions by 2023. In order to reach this goal, we need to raise $100,000 by December 31.
This Montana-specific initiative will be led by Promise686, alongside a Montana-based advisory board, until a local nonprofit partner can step in.
Children in foster care need strong families. Will you help us raise $100,000 so we can work to make this a reality for the vulnerable children in Montana?
