Stand alongside a family in crisis. Offer wisdom and guidance to help the family find the community resources they need to get back on their feet.
By becoming a family friend, you are providing friendship and encouragement. You will get the opportunity to become a prayer partner to the biological and host families. You will be able to talk candidly with the biological parents about your journey and help guide them through personal struggles by becoming their friend who accepts them as they are without expectations.
As a family friend, you will help the biological parents as they set future goals for themselves and their family. With the help of OCA, you can find resources for career placements and housing options.
Trained volunteer supported by community development, organizations, schools, clinics, counselors, and churches.
