Foster Love – Supported by SSUMC

Foster Love Closet

Foster Love Ministries serves the Golden Isles and surrounding counties by forming collaborative partnerships to solve our community’s foster care crisis. It is a Christ-Centered Child Placing Agency that helps meet the needs of vulnerable children in need of loving and safe temporary homes while their parents work to rebuild the family unit. Our Missions Committee has agreed to be a partner with Foster Love Ministries and provide space for a foster parent closet and space for training potential foster parents.

  • Backpacks
