Planting Seeds of Hope

Cultivate support for foster care ministry

In addition to supporting Wellroot Family Services with your prayers and financial gifts, cultivating a Wellroot ministry in your congregation or network offers God’s grace to children and families in your local community.

Raise Awareness

Learn all you can about the child well-being sector in Georgia and about our programs. Use the resources below to share with your congregation or contact us to invite a staff person to your church.

Collect and Pack Kits

Collect and assemble kits to meet the seasonal needs for our children, teens and families:

Sponsor Meals

A wonderful way to show support for foster families in your community is to bring them a meal during a training event. For a list of upcoming needs, please visit the link below and select your region.

Open a Resource Closet or Prepared Meal Pantry

Foster Families need a local resource for frozen and prepared meals, car seats, strollers, diapers, clothes, baby proofing and more. Open a resource closet or prepared meal pantry for foster families in your church.

Throw a "Child Shower"

Throw a “child shower” to support a foster child or resident child. Guests can bring new items from our Wish List.

Host Caregiver Days Out

Give caregivers a much-needed break by hosting a day or evening out. Volunteers provide a safe location, fun activities, a meal and childcare while caregivers enjoy time away.

Recruit Foster Parents

Children and teens escaping abusive or neglectful situations need a safe place to live and be loved. We need your help to recruit new foster parents. Spread the word in your community that supportive, stable foster homes are needed in Georgia! Refer interested families to fosternow.org.

Create a Nurturing Community

Once foster families are approved in your church, you can support them through a Nurturing Community. Your volunteers provide those families with meals, household help, babysitting and/or transportation. To learn more, contact us at cultivate@wellroot.org.
