PurposeOne:27: Walton County FL Foster Support

*Facts provided by Families First Network

Foster families are responding to one of the most urgent needs we face as a community, the needs of the orphan. The drop out rate for foster families is high, but we believe that by surrounding these families with resources and support, we can alleviate some of the burden while helping families to feel loved, valued and appreciated.Many are not able to become a foster family, and we understand that, however, we CAN all HELP SUPPORT those who can. By working together as a community, we can increase the number of loving homes awaiting these children in need. Your support helps foster families to “stay in the game.” Our dream is that Walton County rises from having the highest need for foster homes in the state to the lowest through loving and supporting of our foster families. James 1:27 makes it clear that “His Will” is for us to minister to the orphans, therefore “Our Wheel” was designed through obedience to “His Will.”


After doing foster care for several years, we found that it is extremely lonely. Knowing that there is a group of people, like PurposeOne:27 dedicated to helping these children’s lives become better is comforting.

They are a team of people devoted to supporting our family through one of the most difficult journeys we’ve ever walked, strengthening and encouraging us along the way.

Often during the journey of foster care, the needs are so overwhelming that we often don’t know what we need. It is incredibly uplifting to know that all we have to do is ask one person and most of our needs are met quickly by an entire community. Thank you PurposeOne:27.
