FAMily Adoption

FAMily (Foster Adoption Ministry) is designed to provide support and resources for foster parents, foster-to-adopt families, as well as private, local and foreign adoptions. We are here for you no matter if you are interested in providing a temporary home for foster children, a forever-home for adopted children, or if you are interested in volunteering, praying or donating to support others who would like to adopt.

Adoption Fund

Parkcrest has a separate fund to provide help for those adopting children. If you are in need of financial assistance due to adoption expenses, home improvements or expansion, medical assistance, or furniture and other equipment needs that will help in housing an adopted child, you may qualify for a grant through the Adoption Fund!

Support Group

Whether you need support as you navigate the foster or adoption process, or you have been down that road and want to provide encouragement and a listening ear to others, our Adoption Support Group might just be the place for you! Parents that foster or adopt children, or are interested in caring for children in this special way, will enjoy a time of sharing and encouragement. Contact Anne Moore for more information and meeting times.

Family Visiting Center

The Family Visiting Center, located at the Lakewood campus, serves as a place where separated families can meet to find hope and healing, to restore relationships, and find loving encouragement. It is staffed by Parkcrest volunteers, and there are several ways you can serve with this ministry, including monitoring family visits. Contact Susan Flanagan to learn more!
