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:
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. Chosen also shares resource referrals to other non-profit agencies or professionals that can best meet the needs of these families. In all circumstances, the Gospel will be shared with all involved in this journey.
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. Raising awareness of the great need for more foster and adoptive families is central to our community education. We also seek opportunities to speak with groups about adoption, fostering, and infertility topics and 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.
Community: Outreaches provide foster/adoptive families with an opportunity to be involved in a community with others sharing common experiences. These gatherings help to build community while providing a free, fun, and family-centered experience. In the future, Chosen envisions 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.
