The Shelter Ministry

The Shelter Ministry runs to the hurting in our communities by focusing on supporting those involved in foster care and adoption while walking alongside those impacted by unplanned pregnancies or having abortion as part of their story.
 
This is done in several ways, including partnering with local organizations focused on these areas, mobilizing Broadmoor members to give generously of their time and resources to be involved, and equipping those with a passion for serving with the tools needed to best love those in need.

About Adoption

Adoption. It is a beautiful word and a beautiful plan. However, the process can often seem overwhelming. There are so many options, so many new terms to learn, and so many steps along the way. Then there is the cost. How will we pay for this? Our team would love to help. We have mentors who can sit with you to discuss your hopes and concerns about the adoption process. They will take what seems a complicated process and make it more clear. They can also put you in touch with others who have adopted in different ways so that you can learn more about the various options.
 
What about the costs? While adoption costs can be high, most people find that others are willing to help. That is why we have established an adoption fund here at Broadmoor to assist with both domestic and international adoption costs. In our partnership with Lifesong for Orphans, we have matching grant and low interest loan options that could significantly reduce your adoption costs. We may also be able to partner you with local attorneys to help offset some of the fees related to domestic adoption. Contact us to find out more about your financial options related to the adoption process.

Facing and Unexpected Pregnancy?

We know that the news of an unexpected pregnancy can leave you with all sorts of thoughts, feelings, and questions. Will I raise this child on my own? Can someone in my family step in to help? Should I place this child into the arms of an adoptive family? While these are very personal decisions, it can be helpful to have someone to walk with you on your journey. Our team is here to listen, and to give guidance along the way. Reach out to request a call from one of our trained pregnancy decision counselors. You don’t have to walk this road alone.
