Help for Faith Communities
Back to Parenting
WHAT CAN YOUR FAITH COMMUNITY DO?
  • Inform parents about the prenatal/postnatal parenting classes and family counseling programs available in their area.
  • Organize support groups where expectant parents and/or current parents can gather to discuss the joys and challenges of child-rearing.
  • Develop educational or recreational programs for children during the week or on weekends in order to give parents a much needed rest.
  • Take time to talk with mothers and fathers who seem overwhelmed and ask what you can do to support and nurture them.
  • Implement a mentor program so that children can form friendships with adults in the faith community.
  • Host a seminar about adoption.
  • Sponsor a foster family and offer them care, support and respite.
