IN THE COMMUNITY

There are many opportunities to serve foster/adoptive families in our community. Here are just a few.

  • Helen’s Hope Chest: Helen’s Hope Chest helps foster children with their basic needs, such as providing quality clothes, school supplies, books, bedding. Volunteers help organize all the donations that come into the facility.
  • Foster Care Review Board: These volunteer panels regularly review each foster child's case and advise the court on progress being made.
  • Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA): Volunteers are judge-appointed to advocate for the safety and well-being of children who are victims of parental abuse and neglect.
  • Arizona Helping Hands: assists foster families provide safe, loving environments for children in Arizona's Department of Child Safety system with programs that provide many of the basic needs for these boys and girls. There are several opportunities to volunteer.

Not everyone may be called to bring a child into their home, but James 1:27 encourages us all to do something.

PRAYER TEAM

Our Prayer Team meets from 6:30-7:30pm the third Wednesday of every month in the church office on Mission's campus while our foster/adoptive parents are in Community. Our Team prays for foster/adoptive families, the ministry of Mission Foster, those who support foster/adoptive families, and the foster care system.

CHILDCARE

Our volunteers can interact with foster/adoptive families by helping with:

  • FOSTER & ADOPTIVE PARENTS' COMMUNITY CHILDCARE on the Mission campus
  • Several volunteers are needed every month on the 3rd Wednesday from 6:15-8:45pm to watch children while their parents meet.

Mission Foster, a ministry of Mission Community Church, exists to empower Christ-followers to walk alongside those whose lives have been impacted by the foster care crisis.
