Poverty, missing support systems, and a lack of healthy parenting skills create a vulnerable environment for families. In these vulnerable circumstances, a simple problem can compound into a debilitating situation. As a result, children may suffer neglect or abuse with some eventually placed in state custody.

Harbor Families, traditional Foster Care, and Families Count™ are all Lifeline ministries that equip the local church to provide support and education to families who have experienced or are at risk of separation. Through these supportive relationships, parents and children hear about hope in Christ as they work toward the ultimate goal of family reunification.
