Chosen, Inc. ("Chosen"), a Wisconsin non-profit fostering and adoption support ministry, exists to Foster Forever Families by living the Gospel so that all children can experience a safe and loving home.
Chosen is committed to helping children and families in three areas:
Education: Chosen seeks opportunities to educate and inform the surrounding community about adoption and foster-care issues using the unique and vast experiences of those within the organization. We are currently seeking opportunities to speak with groups about adoption, fostering, and infertility topics. While we have several presentations produced, we are able to speak on a variety of topics. We also have a compelling journey of hope to share with women's groups, churches and other organizations seeking a Christian message about overcoming difficult circumstances with the foundation of faith and hope in Christ.
Support: Chosen aims to support those in the fostering and adoption community physically, emotionally, spiritually, and financially. Tangible support is provided through The Family Closet, which is supplied by donations from the community to provided needed material items to foster and adoptive families. Outreaches provide foster/adoptive families an opportunity to be involved in a community with others sharing common experiences. Chosen also shares resource referrals to other non-profit agencies or professionals who can best meet the needs of families in need. In all circumstances, the Gospel will be shared with all involved in this journey.
Community: In the future, Chosen will establish a multi-family foster home to care for as many children as possible. This will provide stability for children in one home, give them a place where they feel comfortable, and allow them to learn about the love of Christ. A low-cost home community for foster families will ensure they have access to support, resources and the fellowship they need right at their fingertips.
Most of all, Chosen wishes to show the love of Christ in a practical way to children, families, and communities.
