Give justice to the poor and the orphan; uphold the rights of the oppressed and the destitute. – Psalm 82:3

Let your ministry be the difference in the lives of many

We help you find your path, show you the way, and equip you with the resources you’ll need to make a difference.

The church has been called to care for orphans just as God always has and will. Your church makes the difference. Your church could be the connection between a child and their future family.

Psalms 10:14

But you see the trouble and grief they cause. You take note of it and punish them. The helpless put their trust in you. You defend the orphans.

The Fostering Collective helps churches find the resources and support you need to build fostering ministries in your congregation

This begins with equipping your church family to effectively support the families in your church who are already actively fostering or adopting.

Then, it involves helping members of your church who feel called to adopt, foster, or support active families – not to mention connecting them with resources and Biblical guidance they desperately need. Child Protective Services, fostering agencies, and various other organizations are excited about partnering with your church to help children get adopted and families get the support they need!

Why We Do What We Do

How many people give up on their fostering or adoption dreams before they even start because of how difficult to it is or they lack support from their community?

We can do better together.
