To bring HOPE to kids and families involved in foster care in Milwaukee County through support and connection with the church and the community around them.
With over 2000 kids in care on any given day in Milwaukee County and the number steadily rising, there are kids and families left feeling hopeless, without support and caught in a destructive cycle they don’t know how to break.
We THE CHURCH and the community can work together to build connection and support around the kids and families involved in foster care creating stronger families and as a result strengthing our city.
Not everyone can be a Foster family BUT, EVERYONE can do SOMETHING TO IMPACT KIDS AND FAMILIES INVOLVED IN FOSTER CARE.
Help financially support OneHope27
Over the past several years we have seen the number of children currently in care in Milwaukee County increase significantly. We have also seen the young population of moms struggle increasingly with homelessness, mental health as well as alcohol and drug abuse issues. We recognize that many of these young moms spent time in foster care themselves and have little to no connection and support. If we are truly going to make an impact in foster care we must bring hope to the children as well as their parents.
In 2020 OneHope27 will open a Support home that will provide the connection moms need to succeed with a mentoring program, peer team building, life skills classes, and low-cost housing right in the heart of the city. We believe that with support and connection young moms in crisis can begin to thrive and reunify with their children more quickly and successfully. As a result, we will see stronger families and a stronger community.
