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.

Ways to get involved

Meals, clothing, supplies, respite care for those fostering, transportation, welcome boxes for those fostering or adopting, and parties for group homes and foster families are just a few ways you can be involved.
Leaders are always needed for support groups, life skills classes, and parenting classes through the Shelter Ministry.
Thousands of children in the foster care system and in the adoption process throughout Mississippi are looking for hope. There is anxiety and uncertainty for the parents involved in foster care or adoption or for women experiencing unexpected pregnancies. The agencies providing pregnancy counseling, foster care, and adoption services need support and strategy to meet the needs. Women and men impacted by abortion carry a heavy burden daily and need relief. These are all ways you can pray for those involved. Spend some time each week mentioning these groups and for God to provide according to their needs in His timing.
Through Broadmoor’s partners, you can give your time to help serve those on the front lines. Maybe you want to help work with women facing unexpected pregnancies at the Center for Pregnancy Choices, serve in a group home, or mentor a child in foster care. We can help you connect with several organizations to give generously of your time.

About the Shelter Initiative

The Shelter Initiative at Broadmoor was a vision birthed from a faithful calling on those involved in the Shelter Ministry (formerly Orphan Care Ministry) and a compelling charge by our Lead Pastor to run to the hurting by responding to the post-abortion culture with the overturning of Roe v. Wade in 2022. Through this initiative, we are focusing on four key areas to meet needs.
A) Those involved in adoption.
B) Those involved in Foster Care.
C) Those impacted by unexpected pregnancies.
D) Those that have been impacted by abortion in the past.
Through this initiative, we have a one-year goal to see the following occur in the family of faith at Broadmoor.
1 Broadmoor affiliated support group for those impacted by abortion
10 members trained in trauma response to help those who are hurting
20 members in the adoption process
100 members certified to foster children in Mississippi
1,000 members are supporting those impacted by foster care, adoption, unplanned pregnancies, and abortion. *
