Foster Care Information

 

The Foster Care Ministry resource closet is available to all foster parents. This resource serves to cater to the clothing needs of all our foster children.  Sometimes the fosters children come into a foster house with little to nothing, so we want to make sure we can provide for those families who are in need.

The resource closet is open from 6-6:30 pm right before the support group meetings start.  If you have any questions about our resource closet, please email fostercare@kennesawumc.org.
