May Is National Foster Care Month

Most children who come into foster care leave their home due to an emergency situation, and only have the clothes on their backs. A way we can all show our support to Trinity Families who foster these children is by supplying each foster child with a "blessing bag" of items they would most likely use and want. You may drop off any donations over the next two Sunday's, May 28 & June 4, in the bins located in the preschool and children's entrances. Our target age group is currently children under the age of 5.

Find the list of blessing bag items here.

Adoption

In our five parish area, there are currently 445 children in foster care, 246 of these are in Calcasieu Parish. However, there are only 260 foster homes to accommodate these children. There are 72 children free for adoption, with about 25 of these needing a permanent placement. Consider becoming a foster/adoptive parent and let's get these numbers down to 0!! Email family@tbclc.org if you'd like additional information. Thank you for your support of the FAMily Ministry.
