Foster Care

Providing comprehensive guidance and steadfast support for churches called to care for children in their community

Our Process

Because of our constant desire to meet your church where it’s at, this process can take up to 6 months.

1. Initial Meeting w/ church ministry leaders

2. Launch foster care program at your church

3. Onboard potential foster families

4. Begin placing children in homes

Your Church Can Be a Child’s Sanctuary

Our Foster Care Program at WinShape Homes goes above and beyond to shepherd your church congregation through the process. Whether you need homework help or an extra set of hands to prepare dinner, we are here to support your church and your families to ensure that everyone is well-equipped to help a child flourish and find a way home.


How We Support Your Church’s Foster Parents

We guide your church members through the entire process, from initial interest to child placement to permanency (if needed). Our unparalleled support includes:

• Free IMPACT/foster and respite pre-training
• Reimbursement for drug screens, CPR/First Aid, and water safety training
• Free continuing education classes from WinShape Homes trainers and external facilitators
• 24-hour access to a WinShape Homes Case Manager
• Monthly support for extracurricular activities
• A wrap-around community that gives constant support for the foster families

 


We partner with churches because we know we can’t meet this need on our own. With the church, we can partner with families who share our Christian values and minister to the children in an effective way. Secondly, the organic community and support that can be built in a church is a powerful resource to foster families.

From Foster Care to Forever

When Brian and Lindsey Fox decided to become foster parents, they couldn’t have imagined the plan God had in store. Turns out, it was so much better than their own.

“The first thought that goes through my mind now is, ‘No, you can’t do it, because you can’t do it on your own,' but you can do it with the Lord. It is possible.”

Lindsey

Foster Parent

“This is not us; it’s about Jesus... It’s what He cares about, and it’s how we live out our faith. It’s a way to tangibly live out our belief that we are called to care for foster children.”

Mark

Foster Parent

“I feel indescribable fullness in caring for these children.”
