Promise686 equips churches and families to meet the needs of orphans and children in foster care. They provide financial assistance for adoption, educational resources for individuals and churches, volunteer support for foster families. Their goal is to raise awareness and educate church communities and reduce barriers to adopting and fostering lonely children, with the desire that more children will be nurtured in loving families. Answering God’s call to “set the lonely in families” (Psalm 68:6), Promise686 believes churches and their families are the key to unlocking the current crisis in child welfare.
By training churches on how to create and lead successful Family Advocacy Ministries (FAMs), Promise686 is working toward seeing every child in a safe and loving family, forever.
Promise686 is racing ahead to End The Cycle of foster care
Foster care is necessary. Children staying in foster care — too long — is not! Right now, Promise686 has an extended educational and experiential campaign underway, inviting people across America to understand the needs of kids and to then take on a fitness challenge related to those needs. Simply follow Promise686 on Facebook or Instagram or visit www.Promise686/race. It’s not too late to participate!
Further, Promise has made all of its trainings virtual so you can start a Family Advocacy Ministry (i.e. FAM) at your church! 100 new FAM leaders are getting trained this month!
