Fostering Hope

Fostering Hope is an important work of the Jesus' Church. It should be a part of everything that we do. One of the communities that need hope is the fostering community. Within the fostering community, you have children who have been taken from their homes, families who have taken these children in need under their care, and a maxed-out community support system just trying to figure out how to serve both the children and families best.

Fostering Hope is a place to rally around those needs. Here are a few of the community resources that Faith Bible Church partners with.

The way we like to describe the fostering system in New Hampshire is this way. Imagine 20 school buses full of children, and you see these buses driving through your neighborhood. These 20 school buses represent the number of kids in the NH foster system. Our question is: "What will we do when these school buses drive by? How many kids can we help off the bus?"

The Forgotten Initiative
The foster care community needs you and you need them. You have been given strengths, life experiences, and resources that you can use to help those who are feeling overwhelmed, misunderstood, or forgotten. When you support agency workers, foster parents, vulnerable adults, and children, you have the opportunity to show Jesus to them.
