Serving Montgomery County and adjacent counties, Love Fosters Hope seeks to provide positive memories, raise self-esteem and extend God’s love to children and teens in foster care.  Love Fosters Hope provides summer camps to foster children and teens ages 6-19 where the kids have  a blast, and  learn that people do care about them and that they are not forgotten. What the children and teens tell us is that camp is the closest thing to family that they get to experience.

 

During the year, Love Fosters Hope  provides the opportunity for 12-15 year-old teens to be mentored one-on-one.  Mentoring is a proven method to help young people achieve their potential.  Mentors are caring individuals who offer support, counsel and friendship while also setting a positive example as role models. 
 
The Net:  Love Fosters Hope is support for teens who have aged out of foster care. Practical and material support are provided to ensure a chance at a successful future.

 

Love Fosters Hope brings hope and healing to children and teens in foster care who have been abused, abandoned or neglected.  The need is great to model the character of Jesus for them, show them their value as individuals and equip them with the tools they need to live independently and to the fullness of their God-given potential. So please give generously to the Pentecost Offering.
