What is Families Count?

“The median amount of time a child spends in foster care is just over one year. We know through research statistics that a child who grows up without a stable home environment and without parents is more likely to have negative socio-economic, cognitive, and academic outcomes.

We also know God designed the family unit as a place of healing and safety for children. And a broken family needs the support, healing, mercy, and guidance from God’s people.

Through Families Count, local churches have a platform to minister to and walk with broken families to help them be restored and preserved.

A 6-week parenting class is court-mandated, so all families seeking restoration must participate in one. Families Count is a biblically-based court-approved class.”
Excerpt from Lifeline Children’s Services Families Count Page
