Did you know that there are over 500,000 children in the foster care system today, some right in your own community and mine? These children, that have often been forgotten, need the love and security of Christ.
The Forgotten Initiative, foster care ministry of Lifesong for Orphans, exists to bring joy and purpose to local foster care communities through mentorship, service projects and family support organized by local TFI Advocates. With a holistic approach they reach out not only to foster children, but also agency workers, foster parents and vulnerable adults.
We are thankful to have 21 TFI Advocates across the country serving their local foster care communities and invite you and your community to join us in serving the forgotten.
- Become a TFI Advocate – TFI Advocates are Christ followers who desire work with The Forgotten Initiative to serve their local foster care community in 3 main ways:
- LEARN THE NEEDS of the foster care community (through relationships with local foster care agencies)
- SHARE THE NEEDS with the Body of Christ (through local Bible believing Churches)
- EQUIP the Body to meet the needs
We’d love to hear from YOU! What opportunities as the Lord given you to ADVOCATE for the forgotten? Share below as a comment.
