It has been broadly stated that the American foster care system is in crisis. The crisis can be simply understood as suffering in capacity, stability and quality. CompaCare® helps reduce that stress and improve outcomes. It empowers a very important, and often missing element, to achieve betterment through an unequaled volunteer resource known as the Church.

CompaCare® helps churches minister to vulnerable children and families in their local communities. Although was built for the foster and adoptive families, it can be leveraged to serve virtually any vulnerable need.

FIVE REASONS YOUR CHURCH SHOULD DEPLOY COMPACARE®

• It helps church leaders to apply Ephesians 4:11-12 by providing practical ways to “equip the saints for the work of the ministry.”

• It is evidence-based. Research has shown a significant increase in foster care outcomes when this system is wisely applied.

• It is local-church led and gives the church a voice to impact their community.

• It helps resolve the foster care crisis by increasing capacity, promoting placement stability, and thereby increasing foster care quality.
