Foster Family Resources
If you're ready to jump on the crazy roller coaster of foster care, we want to come alongside and support you! There are three main ways we can help:
Through our partnership with The Salvation Army, we offer an easy on-ramp for perspective foster parents from Faith Church as well as being able to offer some of the required trainings right on campus.
We offer a monthly support group for foster families on a Sunday morning, while your kids are being loved in Faith Kids/Faith Students environments.
From time to time, we offer special collections or other practical support to foster families in the church - such as giving winter coats or Christmas gift cards to children in care and their biological siblings.
There are many local foster and adoption agencies. Faith Church has a partnership with The Salvation Army, and we whole-heartedly recommend them to anyone in the Lehigh Valley who is looking to foster or adopt children. Click the button below to visit their website and learn about the specific services they offer, and the process of becoming a resource parent.
Foster Parent Support Group
All current foster parents are invited to this support group which meets the second Sunday of every month in Room 31 at 11:15 am. The group is facilitated by Matt and Shannon Salvo. Not only are they foster and adoptive parents themselves, but Shannon also works for a foster agency so she understands foster care from many angles. Group content will be determined by the needs of the group, so feel free to bring your ideas, your questions, your struggles, and your triumphs to share. The group is open to all parents who have at least begun the process of applying with an agency, even if you don't have children in your home yet.
Foster Parent Connection
We keep a list of everyone from Faith Church who is fostering or in the process of adopting from the foster care system so that we can let you know about resources and special events that will help you along your journey. Please fill out the form below to get in touch with us!
