How We Reach
Woven Together ministers to the fatherless in a variety of ways. We provide direct care to the fatherless, assist those who may want to adopt, and support foreign missions that care for orphans. You can get directly involved in many of these areas and make a difference in the lives of the fatherless.
Woven Together Fund: Initial costs keep many from following God’s call to adopt. The Woven Together Fund is helping with those cost. We have partnered up with Lifesong For Orphans to administer our scholarship or no interest loan program. The Butterflies Kid’s Sale, Adoption Rocks! Coffeehouse, and 5K for Orphans are our fundraisers for this program.
Coming Soon: Adoptive Families Support Groups
Journey Bags: Children often come into foster care with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Journey Bags are backpacks which will provide personal belongings and comforting items for children entering foster care or being transitioned into new foster homes. These bags are given to foster children through the Center for Youth and Family Solutions and DCFS here in Logan County.
Paper Trails is a group of local scrapbookers who are making lifebooks for children in the local foster care system. A Lifebook is a tool for social workers to help a child heal. The children will fill in many pages themselves to tell their story. We are blessed to provide pretty pages for them to do that on. We want them to know how special they are.
Paper Trails meets quarterly, and would love for you to join us!
Project Sunshine is a makeover project for the agency waiting room. This was birthed out of a desire to create friendly spaces for kids during this dark time in their lives.
Global Orphan Care:
Yatima Project: A church to church initiative. Supporting the church in Bukavu, Congo who has taken in orphans even though they live in abject poverty themselves. Our Yatima (Swahili for orphan) Sponsorship Program pays for schooling expenses for 45 children.
