Foster Care

Make a difference with vulnerable children and families!

Providing Support

As Christians, we have a God who cares for the vulnerable and who shows us how to do the same. Children in foster care need caring families to support them through healing as they go on to be reunified with their biological family, a relative, or to be adopted.
Not everyone is called to foster or adopt, but all Christians are called to care for the vulnerable. At New City, we seek to care for foster families, kinship families, and adoptive families by providing support in a variety of ways. Everyone in the church can do something, from writing cards, to house work, there are lots of tangible ways to lift up foster parents to help them better care for children in their care.
This is where New City and other churches in the Chattanooga area come in. We want to provide WRAP around care for families! Agencies continually have a need for stable foster parents, and so many foster homes choose to close due to feeling overwhelmed, and not having enough support. WRAP teams provide that support! Through the WRAP model, foster families can receive a meal during a busy week of appointments and social worker visits, or be blessed by others who take the time to volunteer to babysit. We have structured WRAP teams to enable you to minister to foster families with ease throughout your normal routines.

WRAP is an acronym for each area of support we desire to provide to foster families.
As a WRAP team member, you pick one area to serve in and focus on supporting your team’s foster family each month!
