OneFamily was birthed to bring awareness, advocacy, and training to better the foster care community. OneFamily's mission is to equip and empower families to wrap around and support foster and adoptive families, increasing retention.
We train churches, partner with local businesses, empower our community and provide essential resources in order to nourish the families in our community and to bring temporary and forever homes to those who need them.
We believe in the power of community, the unity of churches, and the support of businesses to help, empower and bring hope to foster children and the families who care for them.
