Foster/Adoptive Families

Are you a foster or adoptive parent and live locally?  Vineyard Church Glendora is committed to providing support to you and your unique family.  Are you wanting to become a foster or adoptive family?  Vineyard Church Glendora would love to provide as many resources as are available to help you navigate this complex and overwhelming process.

Moms Seeking Connection and Encouragement…

FAME 1

Being a mom is a complex journey in and of itself.  Being a fost/adopt mom adds a whole other layer of complexities and concerns.  You’re not meant to navigate these waters alone!  Join other fost/adopt moms every first Friday morning of the month for a time of encouragement, support, sharing resources and prayer.  Each month pertinent topics relating to raising fost/adopt children are discussed and resources are shared.  Childcare is provided.  For more information on time and location contact Executive Pastor, Abigail Gaines at againes@vineyard-church.com.

Adoption Assistance Fund…

Are you seeking a private or international adoption and have no idea how you’re going to raise all of the necessary funds?  We want to help!  In 2011 Vineyard Church Glendora started the Adoption Assistance Fund in response to a family in their church adopting from Ethiopia.  We were able to raise significant funds to help bring their daughter home.   We encourage the church and community to not only contribute to this fund, but have also hosted various fundraising events.  All contributions are tax-deductible.   We are willing to support you in your fundraising efforts!  You can also donate to this fund online: HERE

Looking for a church family that reflects your unique family…

If you are not already connected to a church home, we would love for you to connect with us!  VCG is full of fost/adopt families and our children reap the benefits of being in close community with families that reflect their own.

Have Questions About the Process or Need General Support and Resources…

Contact us!  We have seasoned fost/adopt moms and dads that are ready to encourage you and help you at your point of need!  Don’t do it alone when you don’t have to!   Contact Executive Pastor, Abigail Gaines at againes@vineyard-church.com
