Are you interested in learning more about fostering or adopting?

 

LET US KNOW

Grace Church is committed to caring for vulnerable children and supporting the foster and adopt community across the Upstate and within our body through foster family recruitment, training, support, and various other resources.

 

We have full time staff to guide people through the licensing and adoption processes and to provide support to those who are fostering or have adopted.

 

Read on for information about resources available to foster and adoptive families at Grace Church and in the community at-large.

Foster & Adopt Resource Center

We welcome kinship caregivers as well as foster and adoptive parents. As supplies allow, we provide essential items when children come into care and at the changing of seasons or sizes/developmental stages. Visit the F&A Resource Center webpage for hours of operation, location, and much more.

Other Resources for Grace Church Families

These generous people are providing free haircuts, birthday cakes, legal counsel, freezer meals, and much more.  Additionally, Grace occasionally hosts support groups and studies for foster and adoptive families.

Wraparound Groups

These community groups serve together to pray regularly for the foster or kinship care family, the child(ren), and the biological family. They may also provide meals, childcare, lawn maintenance, and other general support to help these families who have opened up their homes to provide foster and kinship care or who have recently adopted a child or children. This can look different for each family and situation.

If you are in need of a community group to wrap around you and your family, let your community group leaders or campus pastor know.
