Mission: Surrounding vulnerable children, and the families who support them, with caring communities.
Vision/Purpose: Foster children have been torn from the most foundational of human relationships, that of a child to their parents. When this God-ordained relationship is fractured there are significant spiritual and emotional consequences. Well-meaning foster parents stand in the gap to give these children the love and support that all humans require, but they are often unequipped and unsupported in their difficult work. Most find that they are unable to continue fostering after their initial placement, often due to challenges related to the trauma these children have experienced. We believe the church is the answer. Placing Christian Care Communities around these families is a proven solution to keep them fostering stronger. The Care Communities provide them with support in the areas of meals, childcare, child mentoring, and prayer. This keeps families fostering longer, and will encourage others to become foster parents when they see that the Church will support them. We exist to facilitate the establishment of Care Community ministries in individual churches and to connect these church ministries in a broad network that covers the state of Wisconsin.
