Imagine a place where every child feels safe, loved and ready to learn.
Imagine a place where adoptive and foster parents have the chance to experience true connection and care from those who are ahead on the journey.
Imagine a place where siblings of adopted or foster children are able to express their thoughts and feelings with therapists that understand.
This is the vision of the Memphis Family Connection Center: holistic hope, healing, support, and care for the entire family. A place where families learn to move from simple survival to deep connection, awareness and joy.
“In order to help our children heal, we must understand and address the differences in their brain, body, biology, and beliefs.”
Dr. Karyn Purvis, Texas Christian University

MFCC is powered by the local Church, because we believe that the local church should be trained to care for adoptive and foster families, and encourage the practice of foster and adoption. (James 1:27)
Memphis Family Connection Center is working to lead the charge toward offering holistic, affordable, trauma-informed therapy in the Mid-South and beyond.
