Fostering Together: Whether new to fostering, or a long-time veteran, each child we care for presents new challenges to our family and new opportunities to reach out to their family. Together we strengthen our serve and our families by walking in community. Sharing with others who have been there can offer encouragement, understanding, support and advice, and desire to learn from other’s experiences in a positive environment. Join the Fostering Together group the 4th Thursday of each month, 6:30-8:30pm at Ridge Point Church- Door E, 304 104th Ave, Holland. RSVP required for childcare (provided free of charge).
PLAYGROUPS: Sometimes we all need a change of scenery, and some socialization with our peers -- that’s true whether we are parents or young children! The Mosaic Play Group provides parents and children opportunities to get out of the house, play in new spaces to stimulate your child’s mind in new ways, socialize with other children, and give parents a chance for adult conversation. Locations vary by season. Watch Facebook or sign up for a reminder email for locations.
