Attend Clinic


The Advocate Clinic provides church volunteers, called Advocates, with detailed training on how to begin and maintain a strong Family Advocacy Ministry (FAM) at their church.

Our Advocate training process is built upon these basics:

 Establish | Equip | Empower
Establishing and Equipping a FAM (Family Advocacy Ministry) to thrive within your local church is facilitated through the training presented at our Advocate Clinic. Topics at the Advocate Clinic include: Establishing Goals, Forming and Launching Care Communities, Creating Awareness, Equipping Volunteers and Working with Public and Private Agencies to best care for foster and adoptive families in your community.
Empowering a Family Advocacy Ministry happens through utilizing our online Advocate Resources that are available thought our Volunteer Management tool called Promise Serves. Unlimited access to these resources ensures Advocates will always have the most up-to-date materials and training available to grow their ministry. After the Clinic, Welcomed walks with churches every step of the way as they implement their FAM.
