* One More Child is an extension program of the Florida Baptist Children’s Home, that offers a Family Support program to assist families living at home who are struggling to have their basic needs met.
* Family Advocates help their assigned families set goals, connect them with social service and religious resources, and provide scheduled follow-up to track their progress in the program. They are kind of like a "Family Coach/Cheerleader"!
