Living as Family, Healing Hearts, and Restoring the Home
We are a group of families united in heart to love children through foster care and adoption. Our support team consists of an advisory board, prayer warriors and several skilled professionals. We have joined together with companies, service groups, churches and individuals to bring restoration to both the home and the lives of children.
New Oaks Community seeks to develop properties where families can live in community and unite in heart for the common purpose of loving children through foster care and adoption. Our desire is that abandoned or neglected children will find a home where they can experience the true love of God, to understand they were born with great purpose, and to be set free to live out their destiny. By planting seeds of unconditional love in their heart, the orphans of our times can become “new oaks” – firmly rooted in family and a contributing part of the community.
New Oaks Community is a non-profit organization with a two-fold purpose:
1.) Provide a community of private residences for those desiring to foster or adopt abandoned or neglected children
The families are submitted to the lordship of Jesus Christ and will live in community (several families living in separate residences within a single complex) as a support system to one another as well as caring for children through foster care and adoption. These families will live both independently and interdependently. They will be independent in their parenting, discipline, education, finances, living quarters, and choice of how many children they will foster or adopt. They will be interdependent in community expenses, care of the property, and times of regular prayer and support.
2.) To serve as a catalyst and resource center, providing information and support for those desiring to foster or adopt needy children
New Oaks Community will serve as a center for advocacy and support for others that are fostering and adopting children. On each of our campuses we will provide training, support groups and offer community activities such as gardening, sports and music. We will also look to leverage a wraparound concept where others share their skills, gifts, love passion to support the families and mentor the foster / adopted children on life skills.
