Support foster and adoptive families in our community in a uniquely personal way. 

Mosaic is partnering with Commission 127 to serve foster and adoptive families by surrounding them with a volunteer Care Community. God’s heart for His people is the “pure religion” of James 1:27 —that we care for “widows and orphans in their affliction.” Caring for the modern-day “orphan” and foster children is not only for those who adopt or foster children, but it is for everyone who desires to share God’s heart for the vulnerable. Foster and adoptive families are on a journey full of both beauty and brutality and need community to surround them in their calling. This is how we can all be involved.

Parents who foster or adopt need to know they’ll be well-supported when a child arrives in their home. Foster children, as well as adopted children, have unique needs and require intentional focus from their new parents. Supporting these families in practical, hands-on ways provides a healthier context for a child’s transition into their new home.

Volunteers offer support in the following ways:

  • Bringing weekly meals
  • Supplying or sourcing practical needs – e.g. bunk beds, strollers, car seats, clothing…
  • Transporting children to appointments
  • Mentoring children
  • Coordinating volunteers for a foster family
  • Becoming trained to provide respite care
