Foster/Adoptive Parents Night out
June 22 we gathered 27 families in Southern Maine for a night of rest and fellowship. Beloved together with The Forgotten Initiative sponsored the fun FREE night for foster and adoptive families!
In the Spring of 2017 we hosted a Bike Drive for youth in foster care in our community. Local business' sponsored youth in Southern Maine and we were able to provide 33 new bikes and helmets to children who are currently in our states foster care system. The event also was an opportunity for us to partner with the Maine Bike Coalition to teach youth about helmet and bike safety. Children got to test out their new bikes on a bike course and left with goody bags generously donated by our local 4H group.
We currently have a team of 5 mentors who are serving our local community! To learn more about the mentoring project check out the link below.
