About Forever Families

History & Purpose

Forever Families is a ministry of Friedens Church that supports adoption, orphan care and foster parenting. Forever Families has three primary purposes:

  • Raise awareness of the plight of the 147 million orphans worldwide
  • Educate, encourage and empower families who are considering adoption and/or foster care
  • Provide funding for: 1) local families in their adoption processes, and 2) orphan care around the world
  • Since 2010, we have raised over $105,000. 100% of the proceeds from Forever Families go to support adoption grants and orphan care. We have been able to give financial grants to many families from southeastern Wisconsin to help fund their adoption processes. We have helped fund the adoption of 30 children, including those with special needs. We have also sent financial support to orphanages in India, Ethiopia, Romania, China, Honduras, and Haiti.
