GGM FAMILY MINISTRIES
Building Stronger Families for Children
FOR supports two important GGM (Grace Global Ministries) Family Ministries. Both are dedicated to building stronger families for children. Read about them below:
Grace Foster Care and Adoption
Grace Foster Care looks to connect and support families to foster children in need. According to Adopt US Kids, the state of Georgia had "approximately 14,000 children in foster care last year; 2,740 of these children have a permanency goal of adoption. Out of those children, there are 350 children who are available for adoption and in need of loving, permanent homes."
There are many reasons children find themselves in foster care. Georgia DFCS identifies the top five causes as neglect, drug abuse, inadequate housing, abandonment, and incarceration.
Whatever the reason, these children need love, protection, and care.
Romans 8:15-17a remind us that we too were once lost, but God the Father has adopted us through the work of Christ. "For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ..."
You can help people reflect the love of God to children who desperately need it by supporting GGM Foster Care and Adoption Ministry.
Single Mother's Home - Preparing Her for Life
Parenting is one of the hardest jobs, and doing it along makes it even harder. There are single mothers all over Atlanta who are trying to make ends meet and take care of their children. So often, the feel alone and ostracized by society, but like everyone else they need the love of God.
GGM works to share the love of Christ with single mothers in-need by providing answers to questions, resources, and support. The ultimate goal is to help set single mothers and their children up for life. If you'd like to help these families thrive, then please consider donating to GGM.
