Please join us to learn why volunteers are so crucial to the success of a foster care placement. You will discover the different levels of volunteering that are possible: making meals, babysitting and various kinds of mentoring. You will learn about the unique challenges that foster families face and how you can come alongside them to help them succeed. You will receive information about confidentiality and discipline policies that will help you better serve children and the families who care for them. We will also be sharing about the opportunity to serve with already existing Gwinnett County foster homes, and coming alongside foster children in a time of need by serving in the courthouse waiting room.
The main session will be 1 hour. Those who wish to consider supervising foster children in the court waiting room will stay 15 minutes longer to find out about this special serving opportunity.
Contact Tracy Baird at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
When & Where
LIVE THE PROMISE
Live The Promise, led by Promise686, depends on a coalition of churches working together. Promise686 mobilizes and serves churches and families to meet the needs of orphans and foster children. Specifically, Promise686 is a ministry that assists families and churches care for orphans and children in foster care, by providing financial assistance, community support, and educational resources. Promise686 believes the best way to care for vulnerable children is through a family. In short, if “God sets the lonely into families” (Psalm 68:6), then so will we. We accomplish this in the foster care realm through our ongoing campaign – Live The Promise.
