Meet Christopher & Keagan
Children who age out of the foster care system _- reach age 18 – without achieving a permanent home environment often face lifetime challenges, including homelessness, incarceration, and a lack of educational attainment.
Foster Love Ministries has grown out of our local “The Forgotten Initiative” group because of a desire to be more welcoming, more supportive and more focused on all families associated in any aspect of the “children in foster care community”.
Their mission is to bring hope, love, joy to our local foster care community by partnering with churches, community members and you.
