My Florida My Family
Chosen is Partnering up to Provide Trauma-Responsive Care

Chosen is proud to be in partnership with My Florida My Family and For Others to provide trauma-informed parent coaching and counseling to families impacted by the child welfare system in the State of Florida.

Chosen is proud to announce a partnership in the state of Florida with My Florida My Family and For Others. We know the child welfare system can be overwhelming–that’s why we are providing parent coaching and therapeutic services to foster, adoptive, kinship caregiver, and biological families.

Chosen provides mental and behavioral help for children and families who have been impacted by abuse, neglect, abandonment, and loss. Our Gospel-centered discipleship approach is backed by science and provides healing to hurting children by strengthening their families. Our trained staff help guide struggling parents and caregivers down a path to healing for their children and their entire families.  

“God works through genuine connection. When I first learned of Chosen, I quickly realized the connection was not random, but God-inspired. It’s the reason why I am honored to have Chosen join the For Others network to bring healing to the most vulnerable families.

-Chris Tomlin, American Contemporary Christian Music Singer-Songwriter & Founder of For Others

How Chosen Became a Partner

For Others has recognized Chosen has having a best-in-class care model to address childhood trauma and has selected our organization as one of its five partners. Chosen, along with the other For Others partners, was also invited by Governor Ron DeSantis’ office, as part of his faith-based initiatives to be part of the MyFloridaMyFamily endeavor to engage the church in caring for the most vulnerable. This partnership will allow Chosen to deliver transformational services to foster, adoptive, kinship caregiver, and biological families who have been safely reunified with their children throughout the state of Florida. You can read more about the launch of this partnership in our press release.

Chosen is relentlessly committed to doing whatever it takes to set children on a path of healing. This is accomplished through proven & effective parent coaching, therapeutic services, and personalized case management to address mental and behavioral health needs in the home.

Five Partners, One Program

America’s Kids Belong has valuable “foster care faith resources,”  including videos, ministry tools, and sermons to help engage a faith community in RESEARCHING their local foster care community, RETAINING great foster parents and RECRUITING more foster and adoptive families. Whether churches are just getting started or have a long history of foster care ministry, AKB’s framework and easy-to-use tools can bring clarity and momentum. The lifeblood of AKB’s work is creating and sharing videos of children in the child welfare system. The videos are emotive and effective, but they also provide a chance to build a trusting relationship with child welfare workers, the church, and other community organizations. The ultimate goal of AKB is more than enough families fostering, adopting, and supporting kids and families. 

CarePortal is an online platform that makes you aware of the needs of hurting children and families in your community. Caseworkers uncover the needs, and CarePortal makes local churches and community members aware–giving them a real-time opportunity to respond. Your responses could help achieve goals like: preventing a child from entering foster care, making an adoptive placement, or supporting a youth aging out of foster care.

 Chosen Care, Inc. provides mental and behavioral help for children and families who have been impacted by abuse, neglect, abandonment, and loss. Chosen’s Gospel-centered discipleship approach is backed by science and provides healing to hurting children by strengthening their families. Trained staff provides parent coaching and therapeutic services for struggling foster, adoptive and kinship caregivers who are in your church and community.

Lifeline Children’s Services presents Families Count, a six-week parenting class and mentoring program offered through local churches to assist parents who are working to achieve permanency within their families. It is a Christ-centered, holistic ministry of the Church that focuses on family restoration and preservation by supporting parents who are at-risk for having their children removed from their homes and placed into foster care, and parents who have lost custody of their children and are working toward reunification. This church-led process assists participants in developing a network of support that can continue beyond the six weeks of classes while putting protective factors into place and fostering personal growth and development.

Promise686 guides churches through a simple step-by–step process to establish Family Advocacy Ministries (FAMs). Churches are full of people who want to make a positive impact in the lives of vulnerable children, but lack a clear and lasting plan. Promise686 empowers churches to effectively share the problems at-risk children are experiencing; recruit leaders, families, and volunteers to step up; and provide programs for preventing children from entering foster care, intervening when children do enter the foster care system, and ultimately connecting children to families forever.

For Others is fighting serious issues plaguing our nation’s vulnerable youth and are strengthening families in crisis. More than 4 million kids and families are served by the United States welfare system each year.
