My Father’s Arrow
My Father’s Arrow provides children in need with safe, permanent, loving Christian homes where they will develop into lifelong servants for our Lord Jesus Christ and live as responsible, educated, law-abiding citizens with great promise and hope for the future.
My Father’s Arrow includes three components. First, a thrift store generates funds for supporting children. Second, Mama’s House” refers to the hub home of the foster supportive residential community to remind all of us that it is a comfortable place where one can always feel at home. The third component is Foster Family Support, which operates under the belief that not everyone can foster, but everyone can do something to help create a community that encourages and supports foster families who are meeting the daily challenges and complex needs of children experiencing foster care.
