Family Stabilization Initiative

The Family Stabilization Initiative aims to address the disproportionate number of children of color separated from their families through out-of-home placements by enabling organizations to expand programs to new communities, provide integrated services, and implement evidence-based models to strengthen families and improve equitable outcomes for children and youth. Funded by a $4.25 million grant, the initiative underscores our longstanding focus on strengthening families.

This three-year initiative will partner with four social ministry organizations including:

  • AK Child & Family (Alaska)
  • Lutheran Community Services Northwest (Washington)
  • Lutheran Social Services of South Dakota
  • St. John’s United (Montana)
