Our mission is to give ourselves daily to help each one live in the rescuing power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. In this effort we are working with over 45 foster families with over 75 foster children (and quite a few adopted and biological children as well), offering support to each participating Idlewild foster care family and child.
Half of the families licensed to foster quit after their first placement. Why? Often because they feel unsupported – being a foster family can be a tough journey. There are emotional challenges, huge time commitments and the system is tough to navigate. A lot of support is needed. We want to support the families and the children.
