Knoxville, TN – Christmas Sponsorship & Journey Bag Drive!

Our Christmas Sponsorship is still underway!  This is a wonderful way to be an encouragement to foster & kinship families, foster children, birth families, and former foster youth!  E-mail Becky Smits at tfi.Knoxville@gmail.com if you would like to review the current list and find a child you’d like to sponsor this year!

2014 Christmas Sponsorship

Our Journey Bag drive continues!  We are looking for all age ranges at this time.  See the graphic below for details and instructions!  Contact me at tfi.Knoxville@gmail.com if you’re ready to drop-off a bag or more!  This is a wonderful way to provide an encouragement at a very scary and traumatic time for a child entering care for the first time.

Advocate - Knoxville, TN

Jeff and Becky have 5 children. After a couple years of fostering and eventually adopting, they still had a desire to continue to help the children in foster care, minister to the social workers in their community, and support other foster families they met along the way. They were always saddened when their foster children arrived with either the typical “garbage bag luggage” or simply just the clothes on their backs. When Becky received an embroidery machine for Christmas and saw a Pinterest “pin” for Shelter Bags, the idea of personalizing bags for children entering foster care began. The ministry flourished and blossomed in meeting needs way beyond that, and they are now so grateful God orchestrated becoming part of such a kindred ministry with TFI! Jeff and Becky desire for more families to know about foster care and how God is calling them to use their gifts to impact the foster care community for Christ.
