Foster Care and Adoption
Growing Generations That Transform Communities
Not everyone is called to foster or adopt, but we are all called to do something. Learn how you can help below. Sign up to support families who have stepped up to the call to care for children who are in need of families locally and around the world.
Become A Foster or Adoptive Parent
Local Foster Care and Adoption
NEED: North Texas is in desperate need of people who have a calling to become foster or adoptive parents to children in need.
DESCRIPTION: Twice a year we offer a basic introduction class designed to give you practical information on the process on becoming a foster/adoptive parent. The class can also be taken at the Arrow offices once a month. This class focuses on the biblical calling and provides you with practical information. It is our desire to partner with you as you take this journey through the licensing process. If you decide to continue with the process, you will move on to the training required to begin the foster/adopt journey.

NEED: There are tens of thousands of children around the world who are awaiting adoption into a loving family. As people who have been adopted by our Heavenly Father, we have the opportunity to change a young life forever by adopting them into our families.
DESCRIPTION: Oaks Church is committed to walking alongside families that are currently considering international adoption. We want to open a dialogue with prospective families interested in adoption and see what needs the church can meet. We use current Oaks families that have a history of adoption internationally to help mentor and coach other families in this process.

Take A Meal
NEED: We know the first week or two after being placed with a new foster child can be a very hectic time in the life of your family. By providing a dinner meal for up to two weeks, we can tangibly meet a very real need, allowing you to focus on building a relationship with the child entrusted in your care. You can also request meals if you have a challenging circumstance in the home ie., illness.
If you are a foster family in need of meals, please click HERE.
