FOSTER FAMILY SUPPORT

The needs of foster kids and families in our community are great.

Recently, Steve and Sara Parsons shared their family's journey with fostering and adoption.


Westminster also partners with local government, community organizations, and other churches to meet practical needs and show love to local foster kids. Here are a few ways you can be involved:

Westminster Chapel partners with other Eastside churches and organizations to promote and support foster care in our community. Our goal is that every child and every family involved in foster care would receive the love, encouragement, and support they need.

Caring for Children Entering Foster Care

Office Moms & Dads is a grassroots volunteer based organization that has been a vital part of Washington Department of Social and Health Services since 2013. OMD is an on-call volunteering opportunity for qualified adults to care for, sit with, and entertain children who have recently been removed from their home.

The average child can wait in a child welfare office anywhere from three to five hours after being taken into protective custody, while social workers frantically search for a suitable foster home or relative to care for them. Qualified volunteers can provide childcare during this time of high anxiety. They help alleviate social workers, care for the immediate needs of the child, and serve the foster care community in a tangible way. The time commitment for volunteers is flexible, but the impact is monumental.
