Did you know there are over 35,000 kids in the child welfare system in Los Angeles County alone? That’s more than any individual state.
As the “Church” we are called to do something about this. That’s why we’ve partnered with Olive Crest, a non-profit organization that seeks to transform the lives of at-risk children through the power of family.
Our goal is to provide 100 at-risk kids a home. Here’s how you can get involved:
Become a Safe Family
Provide short term support for children and families in crisis. Learn more about becoming a Safe Family.
Become a Foster Family
Provide longer but temporary support for children in need. Learn more about becoming a Foster Family.
Become an Adoptive Family
Provide a permanent home and family for a child in need. Learn more about becoming an Adoptive Family.
Our homeless outreach teams work with individuals experiencing homelessness around the San Gabriel Valley by offering food, water, clothing, hygiene kits and a compassionate ear. Through building relationships with our brothers and sisters experiencing homelessness, we hope to move towards permanent housing, offer resume support, job training, and more. We delver food and other items on a bi-weekly basis, along with holidays at the riverbed: Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and Easter Sunday. If you would like to participate by donating items on the list below, please bring them to the Main Office during normal business hours.
In an effort to thank and support our local schools and teachers, Fellowship hosts one luncheon per month during the school year at various schools throughout Monrovia. We have a wonderful team of volunteers that helps by either donating lunch items or serving on the day of the lunch, and we are always looking for more help!
In partnership with the Monrovia Unified School District, we aim to come alongside students in the Before and After School Programs at Santa Fe Middle School by offering educational support in areas such as language arts and math.
In partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of the Foothills, we hope to provide volunteers to help facilitate tutoring sessions for elementary students in their after school programs during the week.
