Community Leader Events

Focus on the Family, in conjunction with local agencies and ministries, hosts free Wait No More events encouraging families to consider fostering a child, adopting from foster care, or supporting a foster or adoptive family. Our desire is for churches all across the area and surrounding communities to spread the word about these events, inviting their congregations to attend.

With that in mind, prior to each Wait No More event, we invite local community leaders to come hear Focus on the Family President Jim Daly share about the children and youth across the country who go to bed every night waiting for families to call their own. With thousands of churches in the United States, local congregations can be a part of the solution for these kids. As a pastor or church or community leader, we need your help!

To learn more about Wait No More and how you can get involved, please come to one of our FREE Community Leader Events. A meal is provided, and Jim Daly will share our vision for Wait No More and explain how we can all work together on behalf of waiting kids.
