Hearts for Hope is a ministry lead by LifeChurch member, Laura Garvey. Hearts for Hope looks to educate the church and community about adoption, foster care and orphans as well as provide support to families who are called to adopt or foster. They do this through open houses, informal gatherings and seminars, as well as hosting socials for adoptive families, and offering an interest-free adoption loan program for qualifying families. With over 500,000 children in the US foster care system, the desire of Hearts for Hope is to provide a tangible outlet as to how the church can be the hands and feet of Jesus as we “care for the orphans” (James 1:27). One way LifeChurch members have gotten involved is through the annual Hearts for Hope suitcase drive (which occurs around the month of May). Each year, members and regular attenders provide dozens of suitcases full of basic necessities for children transitioning to foster care homes.
