Description

The Alliance addresses the community need of insufficient number of foster and adoptive homes, prevention and support services through churches.

~ More than Enough ~
The Alliance addresses the community need of insufficient number of foster and adoptive homes, prevention and support services compounded by fragmented community efforts. The Alliance fills the critical gap between the robust church network, the state's foster/adopt/kinship crisis and local organizations serving along various portion of the continuum including prevention, capacity and support. The evidence-based ministry model will serve and equip church communities to serve children and families involved in the foster care system.

What we aim to solve: Children and families are in crisis in our community. Our community’s youngest, most innocent victims, abused and neglected children, are engulfed in the foster care crisis. They have no voice, no vote, no money, no relationships to rely on, and often no hope. Our community has an insufficient number of quality foster homes and adoptive homes, prevention and support services compounded by fragmented community efforts. Research tells us that the robust church network has the size and influence to efficiently and effectively play a huge role in solving the crisis. Therefore, the South Texas Alliance for Orphans (Alliance) exists to serve and equip churches in fulfilling the biblical call to care for children and families impacted by the foster care system. Our vision is to see every child is a part of a safe and thriving family. Our mission fills the gap between the under-accessed church community and the overburdened local foster care system.

THE STRATEGY: We Get Churches Engaged and Working Together
Every Christian shares a biblical call to care for our community’s abused and neglected children. However, most church leaders and their families are largely unaware of the crisis and the many ways they can serve as part of the solution. Our proven ministry model ensures that the 90% of the church that will never take a child into their home understands the critical role they play in supporting the 10% who will. When the whole church body is serving and connected with community support and resources, we will be a community with a network of More than Enough for every child and family impacted by the foster care system.
