Hope for Families is a ministry devoted to making a positive impact in the lives of vulnerable children and families throughout our community.  We develop care communities that help meet the needs of foster families, single parent families, and parents facing an unplanned pregnancy as well as those facing medical emergencies. 

foster family and adoptive support programs

Our Foster Family and Adoptive Support Programs exist to provide those who are involved in foster care (caregivers and the children in their care) or those who have adopted, wrap-around support so that they can focus on their role as a foster/adoptive parent.  A care community (generally consisting of a group of 4-5 people) can bring weekly meals, help with errands, assist with chores around the home, celebrate birthdays and holidays,…whatever is needed.  We will help match you with a local foster/adopt family and train you, so that you are prepared to support them. When families are matched with committed volunteers who show up monthly, parents feel supported, and children gain a greater sense of normalcy, relational permanency, and self-confidence. If you are a foster or adoptive family in need of support or a member of NWC who is looking to volunteer, please complete the form below.

support for single parent families

Being a single parent comes with its own challenges. It can often be overwhelming and lonely. We desire to surround single parents with a care community (generally a group of 4-5 people) that can support the family in many ways. Bringing a weekly meal, celebrating birthdays or holidays, helping with household tasks or yard work are just some of the ways the care community can come alongside a single parent to relieve stress, encourage, and bring hope. If you are a single parent in need of support or a member of NWC who would like to volunteer in a care community, please complete the form below. 

support for medical emergencies

Are you or someone in your immediate family in the middle of a difficult diagnosis and in need of a care team (generally consisting of a group of 4-5 people) to support you as you receive medical treatment? Bringing meals, picking up groceries, helping with yard or housework, transportation to doctor’s appointments, prayer, and encouragement are just some of the ways a care team can help make life a little easier. If you need this kind of service or would like to volunteer in any way, please complete the form below. 

support for unplanned pregnancies

Have you found yourself in an unplanned pregnancy and want to choose life for your baby but are unsure where to go for help? Could you use some assistance to provide encouragement and support for you and your child? We desire to provide a loving care community (generally consisting of a group of 4-5 people) that would walk this journey alongside you and be supportive in whatever needs you may have. From throwing a baby shower, getting to and from appointments, receiving the appropriate medical care, providing meals, mentorship, prayer, and encouragement.  If you would like additional information about receiving care or a member of NWC who is looking to volunteer in this capacity, please complete the form below. 

support for new beginnings homes

Northwest Church partners and supports New Beginnings Homes in Puyallup, which serves and ministers to pregnant women who choose life for their child. We want to help further support women in a tangible way by purchasing items for their pregnancy or child. New Beginnings Homes has a running wish list of needed items. If you desire to help please click HERE and purchase a gift off the registry or bring items to the Info Table or church office and let them know it's for New Beginnings Homes and we will get it to them.
