About Briarwood’s Foster Care Ministry
Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world. ~ James 1:27
Briarwood Foster Care Ministry provides “out of home” family care for children and young persons who cannot be adequately cared for by their families due to various family problems or crises.
The aim of foster care is to provide a substitute family life experience for the children in need so that they can enjoy a healthy home and community experience. This care will continue until they reunite with their families, are adopted, or reach 18 years of age, and can begin the transition to independent living. Children under foster care service will stay with the foster family for an average of a few months to two years.
