Foster the Bay Interest Meeting
May
23
7:00 PM19:00

Foster the Bay Interest Meeting

Have a heart for foster kids? Venture’s partner, Foster the Bay is a coalition of churches committed to providing a loving home for every child in foster care.

Join us at an interest meeting in Room 305 on May 23 at 7pm at Venture. To register for the Interest Meeting, please click here.

We’ll hear from Nathan and Rachael Gelsinger, on their experience with foster care. Check out Rachael’s recent blog on her perspective of fostering here »

About Foster the Bay

Foster the Bay was born in 2015 when a Social Worker challenged Bay Area churches to mobilize "a faith alliance.” This alliance would partner local churches with their county agencies to address a growing crisis in the foster care system. The Church responded with a resounding yes. In the ensuing years, Foster the Bay has brought nearly 50 churches together in partnership, and 95 families have stepped forward to care for vulnerable children. We’ve seen evidence of the Church’s passion for children and families manifest as 250 individuals and families have surrounded foster families with love and care. So far, we’ve seen more than 100 children placed in loving, supportive homes. Together, we're moving towards a day when the lists of children waiting for a home will be replaced with lists of families willing to open their hearts.
