The Statistics Do Tell a Story
How do you measure success? While numbers aren't always the best indication of how successful a particular program is or isn't, they often do "tell a story" about what is happening on a broader basis. Therefore, when Jen Hall of the SPN staff recently compiled the latest statistics on existing church/school partnerships which we've tracked in the metro area, we were all very interested to see what the "numbers" actually said!

In a state normally considered to be one of the "least churched states" in America, the strength of our current church and school partnership movement is significant—significant enough to garner attention from around the country!

The Family Room

The Family Room
The mission at The Family Room is to provide a homelike visitation setting for children living in foster care to spend time with their birth-parents.  The program aims to increase both the quantity and quality of supervised time families spend together. The goal is to reunite children with their birth parents in a safe, expedient, and sustainable approach.
