Adoption and Foster Care Group

What is it about?

Are you interested in being a foster parent, providing respite for foster parents or advocating for Immanuel families fostering children? Are you considering adoption either domestically or internationally, through a private agency or through the state? Can you pray for families who are fostering and adopting? Then this group is for you! Immanuel is committed to supporting families providing care to vulnerable and at-risk children. Contact LaRaine Rice, larainecd@yahoo.com for information.

Monthly Support Group

If you are at any stage of fostering or adopting, or just want to be a support for those who are, this support group is for you.  Support group will generally meet at 5:30 in room 167 on the second Sunday evening of the month. For more information, or to make sure the group will meet this month, contact LaRaine Rice, larainecd@yahoo.com.

Sunrise Services for Children

+

Immanuel is an avid supporter of the work done through Sunrise Children’s Services.  Sunrise provides therapeutic foster care and residential treatment for abused, neglected, and  abandoned children in Kentucky.  Sunrise has been around for nearly 150 years in one form or another, and is committed to providing the highest level of care to children throughout the state.

 

 

Orphan Care Alliance

+

Orphan Care Alliance offers a variety of services to help the fatherless in Kentucky, from programs that assist families in crisis to providing mentoring for children aging out of the foster care system.  Immanuel partners with OCA to provide training and seminars.

CASA of Lexington

+

Court Appointed Special Advocates are volunteers who represent the best interests of individual abused and neglected children in the family court system.  If you can’t be a foster parent, you can still make a difference in a child’s life by being part of their support system and making sure their voice is heard.

Citizen Foster Care Review Board

+

Citizen Foster Care Review Board members spend just a few hours each month reviewing foster care cases and writing recommendations to family court judges.  The goal of this board is to advocate for children in foster care by ensuring placement in safe, permanent homes in a timely manner.
