I Want to Help the Organization!
___ With Information Packets:
We provide Information Packets to families inquiring about Adoption & Foster Care. The resources we use are from "Hope For Orphans." We do In-Home private consultations as well as hold monthly Group Informational Meetings were we explain the 4 Ways to Adopt & the 8 Steps to Adoption, along with the 10 Ways to help a child in need of Adoption and/or Foster Care.
___ With Support Groups
We provide ongoing support groups for those on the journey of Adoption & Foster Care. We generate Prayer & Praise Cards at our meetings. Our session begins with a Guest Speaker who shares their personal experience. Adding the "Embrace Kids Meet" provides the children a venue to interact with other adopted/foster children and to have fun:)
___ With Wrap-Around Services
It takes a village to raise a child! We provide meals, childcare, respite care, gift toys/books/furniture/clothing, counseling services, fellowships so every family knows they are not doing this alone! We have fun doing Fundraisers for Families, provide CPR classes, etc.
I WANT TO HELP THE FAMILIES!
___ Sibling Needs! Some of our families have other children in the home who have needs also.
___ Medical Needs! Some of our families have the "heart" to adopt but can't afford things like medical care, doctor visits, medications.
___ Home Needs! Home inspection requirements such as adding a fence around a pool, adding a door to a loft, medicine cabinet locks.
___ Child Needs! Our families need to buy car seats, furniture such as bassinettes, cribs, playpens, the list goes on and on! lol
I WANT TO HELP THE CHILDREN!

I WANT TO HELP THE YOUTH!
