Coronavirus Update – Crossroads Meeting Cancelled

MCFAPA, along with The Rock Family Worship Center, are honoring the CDC’s and Governor Ivey’s request to limit social gatherings as well as following school systems closure policy. With the excitement and success of moving our meetings to The Rock, the safety of our families and their children take priority. This Thursday’s Crossroads Meeting is cancelled.

Should you need any food assistance during this time, please know that Manna House is open on Monday, Wednesday, & Thursday from 4pm-7pm. They are currently ramping up to meet the needs in our community. Also, if there are urgent needs concerning OUR KIDS Closet, please send us or them a message.

Stay safe, check on your loved ones daily (especially the elderly), help those that may not be able to get out and shop or grab things they need, love your neighbor, & smile. Be a helper. This too shall pass.

In Case You Missed It…

We are excited to officially announce that starting next month, our monthly meetings will take place at the Butler Campus of The Rock Family Worship Center! We are also changing meeting days from Monday to Thursday. These changes will allow more families to attend while providing a more centralized location for all! We truly appreciate Pastor Leisa & The Rock’s ❤️ for foster care, adoption, and more importantly – Partnership!

Join us on Thursday, March 5th starting at 6:00 PM as someone from Alabama Foster & Adoptive Parent Association comes to speak about Prudent Parenting. As always, 1.5 CEU credit is available to those that attend.

Stay tuned for more exciting things to come!

Did you know that January is National Mentoring Month? While we know that our foster parents are technically mentoring & modeling for the children in their care, we feel that they need mentors too!

One of MCFAPA’s initiatives for 2020 is to establish a Foster Parent Mentor Program called REAP. Our goals from this include:

  • Retaining much-needed foster families by providing a one-on-one mentor to provide encouragement & support.
  • Equipping new families with the skills & strategies needed to be successful in caring for children from hard places.
  • Assisting new families with the skills, strategies, & community that they need to be successful
  • Preventing disruptions with children in care due to stress

If you are a licensed foster family in Madison County, please take this short survey to help us with this initiative: https://forms.gle/dvbeG6shegCfpaqX8.
