about Us

Little Blessings: Foster and Adoptive Family Support provides grants, no-interest loans, community networking, retreats, and donated clothing, toys and furniture to foster and adoptive families. We believe that God calls us as Christians to care for orphans and hurting children. There are boys and girls, children and teens, who through no fault of their own, are in need of families. And there are men and women, dads and moms, who are opening their homes and hearts to them. Not every family can take these children into their homes, but we can all participate in supporting families that choose to foster and adopt. We want them to feel loved, prayed for, and to know that they are not alone in this challenging and life-changing work.

We were founded in 2016 as a registered tax-exempt 501(c)3 to support adoptive and foster families around the United States. Visit our Guide Star profile.

Board of Directors

We are volunteer run. Our staff and board members are unpaid and every donation helps families and children. The Board of Directors guides and protects the purpose of the organization, ensuring we carry it out with excellence, integrity, and accountability.
