2 Corinthians 9:6-8
6 The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.

Long-term Vision  
Foster care was created to be a stable place for children, but with a limited number of foster homes available in our community foster children not only lose their parents or former caregivers, they often lose their siblings as well, as sibling groups of three or more are sometimes split up in 2-3 different homes/group homes all over the state. One of our dreams to meet the desperate need for more foster families in our community is to build a supportive foster home neighborhood where foster families could be centrally located to each other as they parent children from hard places. Other states have found success with this model of providing a solid infrastructure of private homes with Christian, state-licensed foster families living in them as a long-term solution to offer stability to OUR children in crisis. As the Department of Social Services (DSS) looks to drastically reduce the use of group homes, this neighborhood would offer the highest level of care that God-designed, a real, true family, at a drastically reduced cost compared to a group home/institution. Next, it is difficult to recruit and sustain foster families that have one parent who can stay home full-time to meet the needs of medically fragile newborns, and other children with special medical and/or behavioral needs due to abuse and neglect. Caring for some children in foster care (not just babies) is a full-time job of medical appointments and other therapeutic needs. These “home missionaries” willing to take on this role need great support, which a community setting could offer. We can’t wait to see how God is going to bring this plan into reality. If you’d like to talk more about making this dream a reality, contact us!
