Foster the Bay

There are hundreds of children in Santa Clara County in need of a loving family. What if we could be the place where abused and neglected children became beloved daughters and sons?

On top of the need, this is a strategic way we can see an improved Bay Area. The long-term effects of growing up without a caring and stable family include: decreased educational achievement, higher rates of crime, greater likelihood of unemployment, and higher risk of being trafficked.

We are partnering with a local organization Foster the Bay to provide 3 different ways to help beyond becoming a foster family.  

#1 If you are interested in learning more about becoming a Support Friend, Foster Family, or Foster the Bay volunteer, you can attend an Interest Meeting:

  • 11/15/16 (Tuesday) 7:00-8:30pm at Calvary Church in Los Gatos
  • 11/19/16 (Saturday) 9:00-10:30am at South Bay Church in San Jose
  • 11/30/16 (Wednesday) 7:00-8:30pm at Highway Church in Mountain View
  • 12/3/16 (Saturday) 9:00-10:30am at Bernal Bible Church in San Jose

#2 For those who might be interested in volunteering with Foster the Bay, they have volunteer openings as they host the meetings above by providing child care, hosting food, registration & set up/tear down helpers. Email Pastor Chris for more info.

# 3 For those interested in supporting Foster the Bay financially, you can Give Online.
