Communication considerations

Communicating thoughtfully about Out-of-Home Care.

As a leader talking about Out-of-home Care – foster care, kinship care, permanent care or guardianship – from the platform or within your church community, you may bring your own lived experience of the system and those navigating it, or you might be brand new to the space.

If it’s quite new to you, it’s so important that we take a moment to consider our communication about things that have the potential to hit hard and cut deep, or provide a learning moment, for members of your audience, always seeking the Holy Spirit’s guidance.

We’ve created these Communication Considerations to support you in sharing about The Homeward Project with your church. Download the resource below.
