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.
