Position of Morality

In the best interest of children regarding morality and role modeling, there are additional principles to which Families4Families Foster Care subscribes to uphold ethical conduct. We believe this provides the foundation for the values we hope to communicate to the children entrusted to our care.

  • We believe the term “marriage” has only one meaning and that marriage is sanctioned by God which joins one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union;
  • We believe that any form of sexual immorality is wrong;
  • We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect and dignity. Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with Scripture nor the doctrines of the church.
