More Than Enough Essentials
A 10-module e-Course on Working with Others in Your Community
to Transform Foster Care Where you Live
The words “not enough” are heard every day inside of our nation’s foster care system:
Not enough resources | Not enough support | Not enough families
But it doesn't have to be that way
where you live.
If you were to find and collaborate with the right people in the right way, your county could go from “not enough” to “More Than Enough” in a matter of years.
The More Than Enough Essentials virtual experience will introduce you and a cohort of 11 others over ten weeks to multiple leaders from around the country representing decades of experience. Their practical insights along with the principles and practices found in the book, Until There’s More Than Enough, will help you rally like-minded organizations and churches to serve kids and families in foster care together in your community.
We are committed to helping you build relationships with other passionate people on the same journey as you. Therefore, we are only accepting 12 individuals into each cohort. Fill out the application below to reserve your spot!
More than enough for kids and families
before, during, and beyond foster care
is possible where you live.
Module 1: From Here to There
Achieving More Than Enough before, during, and beyond foster care in your community requires moving from foster care activity to foster care movement.
Module 2: More Than Enough What? Part 1
Having More Than Enough foster, kinship and adoptive families is possible in the county where you live.
Module 3: More Than Enough What? Part 2
How we support families is essential to keeping children out of the system and to keeping the helpers helping.
Module 4: Three Key Ingredients
Prayer, vision, and unity are not optional in local foster care movement-building.
Module 5: Data: More Than Numbers
Data is the currency with which you acquire credibility, engagement, and effectiveness.
Module 6: The Actively Engaged Church
The actively engaged church is the difference between the way things have been and the way things could be.
Module 7: Finding Your Friends
Finding your movement-building allies begins with knowing where to look.
Module 8: Keeping Your Friends
Keeping your movement-building allies is dependent on how you build and maintain trust.
Module 9: Time to Swim
The first step from "knowing" to "doing" is the most important step you will take.
Module 10: Roots and Fruits
Tending to your soul is the most important thing you can do for children and families in your community.
