The Family Advocacy Ministry (FAM) exists to provide care and support to vulnerable children and families, particularly through foster care and adoption. We believe the church is called to care for the orphans, widows, and vulnerable in our community. We also understand the difficulty of this work. FAM seeks to come alongside those entering into the hard work of caring for those who come from hard places by forming Care Communities to provide wraparound care and support for them. If you are interested in learning more and/or becoming trained to be a volunteer with our FAM, please join us at our next Volunteer Training on Saturday, November 11 from 9am-11am. RSVP here.
Project Belong's Don't Go Alone Program provides mentor relationships to youth aging out from the foster care system. Project Belong believes that God can use the presence of even just one stable, consistent adult presence to significantly impact the future of an aging out youth. For more information, please visit Don't Go Alone. There is a training session for mentors coming up in October! If interested, please sign up with Project Belong directly.
NewCity is partnering with Homestretch to provide household supplies for their clients as a practical way to support these families on their journey towards self-sufficiency. We will be collecting Home Care 'Kits', which include about 15-20 various household items to meet everyday needs. As a change from previous years, we are planning to have this drive on a quarterly basis throughout the year, as a way to provide more consistent support and adjust supplies based on changing needs.
