Therefore, encourage one another and build each other up...
I Thessalonians 5:11 .
The journey of bringing children from hard places into your families is very rewarding and beautiful, but it can also be challenging and exhausting. It is our desire at Journey to wrap around these families and provide them encouragement, emotional support, and financial resources. Below are some of the ways we show our love and support. If you would like more information on other ways you can wrap around a family or are looking for support yourself please contact Chris and he will get you pointed in the right direction.
WAYS WE WRAP AROUND FOSTER AND ADOPTIVE FAMILIES
Life changes, often at a moment notice. Often children who are removed from their homes leave with just a few clothes and a favorite toy. Hope Totes provide essentials, comforts, and love for these fast foster care placements. To help put together Hope Totes or get more information contact Chris.
moms support groups
This group helps moms who are loving kids from hard places connect with others who understand, provides encouragement for the journey, and shares advice to the unique challenges that come our way. See our Small Group page for the next meeting time.
adoption/foster care fund
There are many barriers to caring for children in need and we do not want finances to be one of them. Thanks to the generosity of many at Journey we offer financial grants to families pursuing foster care or adoption through our Hope Now Fund. To get more information on applying for a grant, email Chris or contact the office during business hours.
Often times therapy is needed for children and families who are fostering or adopting. With over 15 families at Journey who have adopted domestically and internationally, we have a great referral network available to be tapped into. For more information contact Chris and he will get you pointed in the right direction.
