Families with big hearts take in children in the Foster Care system or kinship
Children of family members for whatever reason are unable to take care of their children. These children often come to the new family with nothing but the clothes on their back. The Foster Care Ministry started at the request of Bishop Olmsted with the goal to help children. St. Jerome has a closet with clothes and toys donated by members of the parish. (We have a drive the third Sunday of every month.) Any foster care family or kinship family can call and make an appointment to go to the closet and get help. The Foster Care ministry also has a back-to-school drive and Christmas party. We are always looking ideas to assist these special families!
