The Local Church

The FSFA works to inform, engage and equip local churches to serve vulnerable children and families. We help churches to launch Family Advocacy Ministries (FAMs) and we assist the ministry lead in their engagement with the child welfare system.

The Local Child Welfare Office

When a child has to be removed from a family due to neglect, abuse or other reason the family’s case is assigned to a worker at the closest Department of Child, Youth & Families (DCYF) office. We work to support social workers in these offices as well as the families they serve.

Working Together

Research shows that when 10% of churches in a community work together to support child welfare they can make a significant impact.

Our Network

The FSFA network is made up of churches, Olive Crest offices, and DSYC offices across the Puget Sound area. Use the map to explore your neighborhood.
