May is Foster Care Awareness Month

The WholeLife Church recognizes May as Foster Care Awareness Month! We have a growing number of families who are foster parents, or who help provide assistance to foster youth and families. We understand that during the COVID-19 crises foster care probably looks a little different. However, there are still ways to help foster youth in our community. Throughout the month of May lookout for opportunities to engage in this ministry, and be sure to subscribe to our newsletter using the button above!

Partner Organizations

Justice Ministries focuses on serving youth in the community. Below are partner organizations that you can get involved with today!

Family Promise

Family Promise of Greater Orlando (FPGO) is a nonprofit, interfaith hospitality network providing temporary assistance and case management for families with children experiencing homelessness. FPGO provides services through participation of local congregations, dedicated staff and hundreds of volunteers. WholeLife Church hosts three to four families experiencing homelessness every quarter through FPGO. When families come to WholeLife Church, they spend a week in our classrooms converted to bedrooms and are provided daily meals and snacks. To get involved, contact krizia@wholelife.church.

Visit

Foster Care & Adoption

WholeLife Church has several annual drives for children in foster care. In December, we collect toys to give foster care children a special Christmas. We also continuously collect clothes to donate to From Outside In, which provides one-day boutiques to children in foster care and adoptive families. And every May we participate in Foster Care Awareness Month with learning and service opportunities throughout the month. We also host an annual Foster Parent Night Out event, giving foster parents a night out while we provide child care and activities for foster youth! If you are interested in getting involved, contact Krizia at: krizia@wholelife.church.

From Outside In

From Outside In (FOI) is a mobile boutique that allows youth (ages 12-21) to shop for free new and gently used clothes. Some families find it hard to get the services that they need—FOI provides services directly to the community. FOI believes every youth should feel confident, and the right clothing can help boost confidence at school, in the community and eventually in the workforce. WholeLife Church gets involved with FOI each year by donating clothes and assisting with events. FOI has current volunteer position openings! To get involved, contact krizia@wholelife.church.
