Family Ministries foster care

Located in the heart of the East Tennessee mountains, Free Will Baptist Family Ministries has focused on "getting attached" to hurting children and families since 1939. Working alongside the Department of Children's Services, FWBFM Foster Care provides high-quality foster homes that seek to meet a child's physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.

How to get attached

According to recent statistics, a child enters foster care in the state of Tennessee every two minutes. Currently there are over 9,000 children in the foster care system; there are over 11,000 churches in the same state. We believe the greatest foster families currently sit in our pews with a heart to love like Jesus does and get attached for the sake of the Gospel. We are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus; foster care is a great way to do just that.
