“How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news of good things!” Romans 10:15
Lifeline volunteers touch lives in many different ways. So many selfless volunteers have blessed the lives of adoptive families, precious children, birthmothers, and our staff. If God might be leading you to volunteer in any of the ways below, please contact us and let us know in what capacity you would like to volunteer.
If you have some spare time, we always need help answering telephones, preparing adoption packets, or helping with crucial mailings. If you have time and would like to answer the phone and help take calls from birthmothers and prospective parents we could use your help in Birmingham, AL or Spokane, WA. Please contact our office for more information. 205.967.0811
A unique aspect of this ministry is the need for families who are willing to take newborn babies or older children into their homes in preparation for adoption. It truly takes a special person/couple to care for these babies, to love them as their own, and to place them into adoptive homes.
We recruit foster families who have the ability for a parent to stay at home with the infants or who might work no more than 3 days a week with family care for those days. All families must agree with our doctrinal statement and allow our Lifeline social worker to complete a home tour and study of your family. Also, both parents must complete the state mandated GPS training conducted by Lifeline Children’s Services which is a 10 week / 30 hour course designed to prepare families for fostering minor children.
Our foster families are a tight knit group of families that are very close. Lifeline foster mothers have quarterly luncheons, and work together as an integral team in the adoption process keeping a baby book for the adoptive couple, ministering to a woman with Christ-like care for her child, and loving unconditionally children whom they nurture. As a result of this investment in the lives of women, family, and children many foster parents keep up with the adoptive families and children. Lifeline also hosts a Lifeline family reunion once a year in the fall for the entire program and the foster families enjoy catching up with their special children.
Donating Tangible Goods
