As we read through scripture, caring for vulnerable is close to the heart of
God and therefore should be for his people. Here in Arizona one of these areas we most visibly see the see the need of the vulnerable is in our foster care system. There are 13,000+ children currently in the foster care system and in need of nurturing homes. Additionally there are around 3,000 children in Arizona waiting to be adopted.
It is our desire, as the people of God, to lead the way in recognizing
this great need and stepping into in the midst of broken families to provide foster and adoptive homes for these children. We deeply desire the restoration of these children with their families and we celebrate the redemption of new families being created and ultimately hope for healing only Christ can
The state simply does not have enough foster homes to care for them all and they
are asking for the church’s help.
Redemption Church Foster Care , Kinship and Adoption Ministry was formed in 2012. It was designed to mobilize families and individuals that God has called to become foster and adoptive families. The ministry also was created to support current foster parents, kinship families and adoptive parents through support groups at individual congregation.
We believe that not everyone is called to foster and/or adopt, but everyone is called to do something. As a result we strive to connect individuals who want to support foster/kinship/adoptive families to state organizations and through church events and supports.
We look forward to answering your questions and to walking alongside you in this journey.
