Families Count is a Christ-centered, holistic class that focuses on family restoration and preservation. It targets 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.

There are seven classes, or Counts, that parents participate in with the option of being matched with mentors (Parent Advocates) from within the Church Community. Each class begins with a shared meal and has a total of 12 hours of instructional time meeting court ordered requirements.
