As we celebrate our independence this month, let us not forget the many children in our community and across this country who are still seeking independence from the pain and suffering caused by the ongoing orphan crisis. It is time for the local community to step up and be the solution.
OneFamily believes that the community is best equipped to provide the love, care, and support needed to help children thrive. By training families, churches, and businesses to support these children, we can make a difference and help them find the forever homes they deserve.
So this patriotic month, let us commit to being the solution to the orphan crisis in our community, state, and nation. Let us stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves and provide them with the love and care they need. Together, we can make a difference! Thank you for your support of OneFamily and for being a part of this important mission.
For abused, neglected, and at-risk children,
The OneFamily Team
Royal Family Kids Camp
The Royal Family Kids Camp (RFKC) is an incredible opportunity to transform the lives of foster children who have experienced childhood trauma. The camp runs for five days, from August 7-11, 2023, and aims to foster resiliency, self-esteem, hope, and positive memories in the lives of these special children.
The curriculum and activities of the camp are based on Trust-Based Relational Intervention, which is a method that prioritizes healthy relationships, connection, and communication. By creating a life-giving experience for the children, the camp helps to restore their trust in adults and the world around them.
Family Reunification Day
We are thrilled to announce that we had an incredibly successful Reunification Day this year, and it was a day filled with joy and happiness for all those involved. Port Orange City Mayor, Don Burnette, declared June as Reunification Month, and we couldn't be happier to have received his endorsement!
We were honored to have the opportunity to bless families with gifts as they come back together, and we are proud of the tireless efforts that made it possible. And we want to extend a huge thank you to all of our supporters who contributed and made these gifts possible.
Let's give God the glory for the wonderful work we have done and look forward to more ways to bless families in the future.
The OneFamily Center
Thank you so much for lending us your ears a couple of months ago as we presented our vision for OneFamily at the annual Vision Dinner. Our ultimate goal is to purchase and renovate a ministry building that will enhance our mission and extend our reach beyond Volusia County and Flagler County. Though we were not able to raise the $3.2 million needed to secure the building for the OneFamily Center, the vision remains unchanged. We are confident that God has a bigger plan for our communities, and through your faithful giving, we will achieve even greater heights that are beyond our imagination.
If you feel led to give towards this goal, please visit OneFamilyfl.com/donate or mail your financial gift to 271 Rodeo Rd., Ormond Beach, FL 32174. All contributions are tax-deductible, and we are immensely grateful for your support.
Let's continue to work together to change the lives of orphaned children, create stable family environments, and distribute essential resources to those who need them most. Thank you for your generosity and commitment to the OneFamily movement.
PenFL Foster Care Network
The Peninsular Florida Network has accepted the responsibility to care for 1,184 of the 23,667 children in foster care in the state of Florida. The revival of compassion in our fellowship is laying the groundwork to bring redemption to broken children and families.
We have a beautiful array of rural, urban, and suburban churches that are small, medium, and large in size. Not every church can find families to foster or adopt children, but every church can do something. Below are four areas of involvement:
SPEAK UP - Express the Need
Let’s pray for, preach about, teach on, and advocate for children and families in foster care and for our government and agency partners.
DONATE ITEMS - Empower the Need
Donate items to support foster care families, like - bunk beds, clothing, and meals.
PROVIDE SUPPORT - Engage the Need
Donate your time to provide babysitting, transportation, meals, or respite.
OPEN YOUR HEART - Experience the Need
Prayerfully consider being a foster or adoptive parent.
