Foster Care Bags

God, break our hearts for what breaks Yours.
Foster Care Collection, May 11-19

Child neglect is sadly prevalent in many households in our nation. Every day, millions of children endure the agony of abuse, abandonment, and neglect.

  • Nearly 424,000 children are in foster care in the U.S., with 10,000 in Michigan.
  • Up to 80% of foster children in America have mental health issues.
  • 60% of domestic child trafficking victims in the U.S. have a history in the welfare system.
  • 42% of foster children experience homelessness by age 21.
  • Only 20% attend college, and just 3% earn a bachelor’s degree.

Our Foster Care Ministry provides essentials for children removed from homes and placed in foster care. Children often leave with their belongings in trash bags, and some go with only the clothes they have on. Their lives are shattered and filled with uncertainty. We want to “Show them His love.” with filled duffel bags to make their journey a little easier. Join us in showing these kids love and hope for their future!

“But Jesus called the children to him and said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.’” Luke 18:16
