“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after widows and orphans in their distress” (James 1:27) We consider kids in foster care to be some of America’s most vulnerable citizens. We believe God calls us as a church and as a community to care for and look after each one of them. Fostering Hope exists to bring a community together to provide hope and support to the local foster care system. We believe that these are not the government’s children, but they are our children, and we as a community have the responsibility to care for them. Though children in foster care come from hard places, we, as an organization, refuse to believe that they are destined for a life of chaos and pain. This responsibility doesn’t end with supporting the individual child, it also lies in coming alongside the foster families that care for these children on a daily basis as well as the agency workers who are tasked each day with looking out for the well-being of each child in the foster care system. Our hope is that by coming alongside and supporting the foster care community as a whole we can make the biggest impact for these children. Fostering Hope is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax-deductible.
