Monthly Support Group
Together with Adoptive and Foster Families of Maine we host a Monthly Support group at Curtis Lake Church in Sanford. We provide relevant training and fun Parent nights out. Childcare is provided and all trainings and events are free of charge.
The Mentoring Project
We are currently serving children in Southern Maine through our mentoring program. We provide training and resources for our mentors as they engage with youth in our state foster care system.

Beds for Kids Campaign 2018
This spring we have a goal to raise $10,000 to provide beds and car seats to vulnerable children and families in Southern Maine. We are working with Central Furniture in Sanford and will be providing beds/car seats to families in need this year.
Resources and Support
BeLoved is a place for families to access resources and community connections to build and strengthen their family. Our team are strong advocates for children and families in our state and region. We work to connect existing ministries and organizations to better serve families in our communities.
The Forgotten Initiative in Southern Maine
"It has been a pleasure working with Marie. I had a family that needed a bed for the mom and child. Mom had a muscle issue and was sleeping on the floor she had given the blow up mattress to her son she did not even have bedding. If it was not for the care of the ministry she would still have nothing. The ministry provided mom a bed the kid a bed and bedding. The mom was so happy she cried. At Christmas the ministry provided gifts for kids and teens. If it was not for the gifts especially for the teens they would not have had any gifts at all."
