Be Supported

Prayer. Fellowship. Resources.

 

As Christians we have a unique privilege to be the ones, as Jesus encouraged, to care for the orphan. There is a place for everyone in the FAM (Foster care and Adoption Ministry)!

More than 50% of foster homes will close within one year due to lack of support. At Hope, we don’t want this to be the case. Families provide important space for healing for children from hard places. This work isn’t easy, but many can find roles within our ministry to support these families in our congregation.  Or maybe you are seeking to partner with aging out youth, to become a foster parent, to pursue adoption or are already knee deep into these works – we want to be the body of Christ around you.
