One of the greatest obstacles to adoption can often be finances – it’s an expensive undertaking that can cause fear for interested families. To help, Emmaus Church has two Grant Programs to support families caring for orphans and vulnerable children.
The Emmaus 127 grant exists to empower adoptive and fostering to meet the needs of their adopted or fostered children. Emmaus wants all adoptive and foster families, regardless of financial circumstances, to feel loved and supported. Any adoptive or fostering family who is a covenant member of Emmaus Church can apply.
In partnership with Promise686, Emmaus sponsors a financial grant program that awards matching grants to families <em><strong>walking through the adoption process</strong></em>. This grant applies specifically to adoptive families during the adoption process.
Is your family fostering or has your family recently finalized an adoption? Would you benefit from a Care Community, a group from the Emmaus family who can come around a support you? We would love to connect you with the support you need! Contact Grace Erath at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
