WE EXIST

To serve as a catalyst and resource center, providing information and support for those desiring to foster or adopt children. The Father’s House is a non-profit, faith-based organization and community of living spaces for those wanting to make a difference in the lives of children and the public systems.

 

OUR MISSION

Living as Family, Healing Hearts, and Restoring the Home

New Oaks Community provides support, trauma informed care and helps build relational connections for Foster / Adoptive/Kinship Care Families.  Our support team consists of an onsite leadership team and prayer missionaries, advisory board, prayer warriors and volunteer skilled professionals. We have joined together with companies, service groups, churches and individuals to bring restoration to the lives of foster/adoptive/kinship care families.

OUR VISION 

Our desire is that we will support and encourage foster/adoptive / kinship care families as they help children experience the true love of God to live out their destiny.

New Oaks Community seeks to develop properties where families can live in community and unite in heart for the common purpose of loving other foster care / adoptive / kinship care families. Our desire is that we will support and encourage foster/adoptive / kinship care families as they help children experience the true love of God to live out their destiny. By planting seeds of unconditional love in their heart, these children become “new oaks” – firmly rooted in family and a contributing part of the community.  A healthy safe family is the antidote to a healthy heart, secure future and vibrant community.

OUR PURPOSE

New Oaks Community is a non-profit organization with a two-fold purpose:

1.) Be an advocate for foster / kinship / adoptive programs with the churches in our region.   We will encourage participation from churches in providing homes for vulnerable children and will provide the tools necessary to support those churches and their families with info sharing materials, training programs for foster parent certification, trauma informed care, prayer guides and wrap around programs.

2.) Provide support for foster / kinship / and adoptive families in the following areas:

  • Tutoring classes

  • Mentoring programs

  • Skills training programs – music, arts, sports, wood working, gardening/landscaping leadership, etc

  • Prayer support and encouragement for the families

  • Age out programs – cooking classes, finance training, Life Strategies
