Touching the Whole Family

By Wanda Parker

If you are going to make a lasting difference in the life of at-risk kids you must minister with the entire family. KidTrek is determined to touch the life of not just the child but his/her entire family. Below you will discover why it takes missionaries who are able to devote 100% of their time to these at-risk families.

FAMILY SUPPORT

Our goal is to provide Christ-based family services.

  • Family Support emphasizes a proactive approach toward the prevention of problems to help families function more effectively and develop a sense of family self-sufficiency and community empowerment.
  • There is no single Family Support model – each family is unique with unique needs.
  • It will be guided by biblical principles and goals.

Family Services:

In fulfilling our mission of providing services to kids and their families, KidTrek will adhere to the following principles:

  • All kids will grow up safe, healthy, educated, and in a safe home.
  • All kids within our care are treated with respect, compassion, and dignity in order to provide a high quality of life. Kids, families, and relatives will be provided with appropriate needs assessments and the resources to meet those needs.
  • Services will be provided in collaboration with KidTrek, partnering ministries, and community agencies.
  • Services will be tailored to the needs of individual families and are respectful of the family’s history, experience, culture, and knowledge.
  • Our services will be Christ-based and will deliberately seek biblical truth that can be used to accomplish goals.

Our Strategic Plan:

  • To serve and protect at-risk kids and their families.
  • Families in need will be identified through the relational ministry of KidTrek to kids and their families
    • As Secondary Nurturers make their home visits they will identify needs.
    • KidTrek Family Services ministry will begin with one family.
  • To identify appropriate local agencies and individuals with whom KidTrek Family Services will work to accomplish these plans. Click here to see what some of those agencies might be

Goals:

  • Family Support emphasizes a proactive approach toward the prevention of problems to help families function more effectively and develop a sense of family self-sufficiency and community empowerment.
  • KidTrek Family Services will continually improve its programs and delivery system to better protect kids and their families.
