The Shelter Initiative at Broadmoor is 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 their 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 supporting those impacted by foster care, adoption, unplanned pregnancies, and abortion. *
Ways to get involved
Wednesday evenings at 6:15pm, Preston Crowe leads Crisis Response Training. This video and discussion-based course will meet during the spring semester for those interested in serving as crisis response counselors in the future.
Also starting soon, Broadmoor will host Abortion Recovery Support Group. This group is open to those women who have experienced an abortion in the past. This small group Bible study will be led by Amanda Scott. Because of the personal nature of this group, please reach out to Amanda at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know you would like to be a part of the group or you can ask her any questions you may have.
