Being an Adoptive, Foster or Safe Family can produce many blessings, as well as challenges! That's why Kentwood Community Church aims to provide a community of support to wrap-around these families through the good times, as well as the gut-wrenching times. Here are just a few of the ways that our church and ministry can support you through your journey:
CLOSET OF HOPE
The Families of Promise Closet of Hope exists to serve Foster, Adoptive and Safe Families in our church and community with urgent or ongoing needs. The room is housed at Kentwood Community Church's Wyoming Campus and needed items can be donated at either campus. Families benefit by receiving clothing and supplies for new child placements and growing children. More information...
