Mom’s Support Group

Our mom’s support groups are a time for our foster moms to get together and encourage each other, offer advice, make new friends, and create community. Dinner is provided and you can also earn continuing education hours for attending.

Dad’s Support Group

Our dad’s support groups are a time for our foster dads to gather and fellowship together, seek advice, make new friends, and pray for one another. Dinner is provided and you can earn continuing education hours for attending.

Adoptive Mom’s Support Group

Our adoptive mom’s support group is for women who have adopted out of foster care. It’s a place to continue to find community and seek advice from other women who’ve walked similar paths. Food is provided, but no CEU hours are offered. However, if you attend the group and have adopted through Families 4 Families, you can also continue to come to our Date Nights and other CEU events as space allows.

Offered monthly in Loganville at Summit Baptist Church

Continuing Education Hours

Per state policy, all foster parents are required to earn 15 hours of continuing education per year in order to maintain their foster home license. At least 5 of these hours have to be earned in person. We offer monthly opportunities to earn CEU hours and strive to offer topics that will better equip our foster parents to do the challenging work of caring for children from hard places. We also usually offer childcare for these events. We want to make it as easy and convenient as possible for our families to earn the hours they need.

Monthly in Loganville and Dublin and quarterly in Griffin, Gainesville, and Woodstock

Foster Family Fun Days

Foster care can feel very heavy at times, so Families 4 Families sponsors quarterly family fun days for families to get a break from some of the challenges for a few hours and just enjoy being together and being with other foster families who deal with similar issues. Some activities we’ve done in the past are trampoline parks, indoor and outdoor pools, and the laser show at Stone Mountain.

Quarterly in Loganville and Dublin

Rooted Girls and Rooted Boys

Once per quarter Families 4 Families offers an evening of fun activities for the foster and biological children of our foster families. Kids age 5 through 18 can attend. Rooted will also encourage our older attendees to mentor the younger attendees. Families 4 Families wants to ensure we are serving all members of our foster families well, including the biological children who share in the work of caring for kids from hard places.

Quarterly in Loganville

Date Nights

Families 4 Families offers monthly date nights for our foster families so that the parents can drop their foster and biological children off and have three to four hours to themselves for a date. We know that foster care can take the focus away from other things and we want to make sure our foster parents are still able to prioritize their marriage in the midst of foster care.
