The mission of Cultivating Families is to equip communities of faith to care for foster and adopted children and their families, so that no child will be left to navigate life alone.

Chairs: Marcia Fiman & Alison Septimus

Emanu El Activities:

  1. Adoption & Foster Care Awareness Event: We will host a community-wide event to discuss various types of adoption and demystify foster care, expected challenges and joyful moments during the process and more. 
  2. Build-A-Bed: We will need “handy” members to help construct five beds for foster families. 
  3. First Night Backpacks & Congregational Mailers: We will pack new backpacks with essentials to ease foster children’s transition into a new home; prepare 4,000 mailers for every congregation in Houston, to educate them about Cultivating Families education and support offerings.  
  4. Congregational Mailing: We will assist Cultivating Families with packing their introductory mailing materials to reach over 4,000 congregations in Harris County.

Drive: We will begin collecting new pagamas (sizes 5T-youth 14) and new backpacks beginning on August 1.
