There are roughly 13,000 kids in Michigan’s foster care system. The New Foster Care works with Churches to develop permanent relationships and create positive changes in hopes of one day turning that number to 0. We understand that it takes a strategic and committed plan of servicing at-risk families, supporting foster and adoptive families and strengthening youth who are transitioning out of foster care.
The New Foster Care would like you to consider becoming a “Partner In Faith.” This is an opportunity for you to join our village as we increase awareness and make a measurable impact on the foster care system through collaboration and connection. With these partnerships, we will act as a resource and support for the growth of the foster care ministry within your church. We look forward to working together to strengthen children and families.
Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.
- James 1:27
Partners In Faith
The New Foster Care offers to come alongside you, and your church leaders….whether pastors, elders, ministry leaders or impassioned members of your congregation, and help you cast the vision that aligns with your church’s mission and vision for becoming a church that welcomes and supports foster and adoptive families.

Volunteer support and leader development
Consultation and coaching in developing a foster care ministry or increasing the reach of your current ministry
Marketing and promotional materials for spreading Foster Care and Adoption Awareness including bulletin inserts, brochures, infographics, lobby displays, videos, etc.
