More Than Enough is a collaborative movement facilitated by the CAFO community. It includes hundreds of organizational and church partners all committed to seeing more than enough loving homes for every child in U.S. foster care -- including foster, kinship, adoptive, and restored biological families -- with church-based support for all four.

To reach more than enough, we aim to see churches in every U.S. county actively engaged in foster care ministry by 2025. Core to this vision is the creation and/or expansion of local collaborative networks to cover every one of the 3,142 US counties or county-equivalents.

Our role in this vision is to take the best foster care principles, practices, and people from across the country and put them to work for children and families in your community. We have created many things on this site for your use — from ideas, graphics, materials, videos and our data exchange interface. We invite you to use these tools to help you transform foster care in your community.

YOUR SUPPORT TEAM

Here’s the crew at CAFO dedicated to helping you provide More Than Enough for children and families where you live...

Jason Weber

Jason Weber

Jason and his wife Trisha first gained a passion for children in foster care while living and working in the inner city. Many of the kids and families they encountered in their neighborhood had experienced foster care at some point in their lives.  Partially as a result of this experience, Jason and Trisha became foster parents and have been caring for and adopting children from U.S. foster care since 2001. They have had the privilege of adopting their five children from foster care.

Jason has helped to produce and write several books, bible studies, and other tools all created to serve the Church as it cares for hurting kids.  He eagerly anticipates the day when God, through his Church, provides more than enough for kids and families in foster care. Jason serves as the National Director of More Than Enough for the Christian Alliance for Orphans and currently lives in Plano, Texas.

Jason Johnson

Jason Johnson

Jason Johnson is a husband to Emily, foster and adoptive dad, pastor, writer and speaker.  He and Emily, and their four girls live in Texas and enjoy whatever it is they’re doing, as long as it’s together.

After growing up in a ministry home in Dallas, TX Jason attended Texas A&M University (where he and Emily met…Gig ‘Em!) and began working at a church during his time there. After graduating in 2002 he began his pastoral ministries studies at Dallas Theological Seminary while working in ministry full-time.

In 2008, alongside a core team of people in the North Houston area, Jason had the privilege of planting and leading a church with the Acts29 Network through which he founded a non-profit committed to serving, supporting and equipping foster and adoptive families in the city of Houston. In 2013, combined with 14 years of church-based ministry and leadership experience and his family’s foster and adoptive journey, Jason began working for an organization helping church leaders implement structures and strategies of ministry within their churches to encourage and support foster and adoptive parents. This ultimately led him to his current role as the Director of Church Ministry Initiatives with Christian Alliance for Orphans. In his work he speaks and teaches at churches, conferences, forums and workshops on church-based ministry strategies and best practices as well as encouraging families that are in the trenches and those that are considering getting involved. Much of his time is also spent coaching and consulting with church and organizational leadership teams around the country on how to start, lead and grow ministries within their church or build the most effective church engagement strategies within their organizations.

Jason is the author of ReFraming Foster CareEveryone Can Do SomethingALL IN Orphan Care and he blogs regularly at Jason Johnson | Blog.

He has a passion for creativity and working with his hands which lead him on a continuous quest to uncover something new.

It was during an Orphan Sunday service in 2014 that she and her husband Jacob first had their eyes and hearts opened to the great need for loving foster parents in their area. They opened their home the following year and were parents to many kids over the next few years. They currently have three children, both biological and adopted.

Rachel Wilson is currently serving as the Data Coordinator for More Than Enough. When Rachel was six years old, her family adopted two of her older sisters from Ethiopia, which God has used to place a special burden on her heart for vulnerable children and families. Throughout high school and college, the Lord continued to provide opportunities for her to intern and volunteer with various adoption and foster care agencies, eventually allowing for her to cross paths with the CAFO team! Rachel has enjoyed getting to use her God-given abilities, including her eye for detail and love for data, to serve the CAFO community in her current role.

Rachel graduated from Clemson University in 2019 with a degree in Sociology, and she is currently earning her Master of Social Work degree from the University of South Carolina.
