We disciple parents through the foster care journey so they can restore their families and fulfill their service plans.

We offer mentoring, temporary housing with Safe Families, and a court-approved biblical parenting class along with various other Watermark ministries to support parents. When reunification is no longer an option, we promote kinship placements and openness through adoption.

No child or parent should walk the journey of abuse, neglect, or healing alone. Watermark is a supportive community of believers who will fight at your side to help restore your family.

Safe Families

Safe Families is a foster care alternative providing temporary housing and discipleship to vulnerable families in need of a safe place for parents and/or children to stay. Host Homes are trained and vetted to provide appropriate care, and parents are paired with a Family Coach to navigate needs and resources.

A family cannot have an open CPS case in order to be eligible for Safe Families.

Need a Mentor?

We help parents navigate Child Protective Services (CPS), identify resources, and develop a biblical community of support to restore families or prevent the need for foster care altogether.

Contact us for more information.

Additional Ministries

If you are at risk of having one or more children removed from your care, or have already had a child removed for any reason, Watermark wants to see your family restored.

In addition to our Family Restoration efforts, consider these other opportunities to help you lead your family. All are in the context of a welcoming Christian community that desires to see you, your family, and your child(ren) discover the hope of Christ and thrive.
