Vision: Under His Wings home for children provides permanent refuge for fatherless and orphaned children and temporary care for children with special needs.
Although my father and my mother have forsaken me, yet the Lord will take me up [adopt me as His child].
Mission: To enrich the lives of children and develop character through learning and living by creating a stable and loving home environment and by having the community in which they live participate in their general development.
Under His Wings was designed to look at the lives of each individual child and prayerfully consider their needs and strengths within the family unit and provide for them in a way to promote healthy growth into mature, productive adults.
UHW was also created to help other foster/adoptive families and single parent families to become better equipped to care for their children.
Goals: To acquire property and housing to accommodate our ministry in a greater capacity. Our home is a mission outreach for children to live and learn and play without hindrance or fear. On the property would be included a home or cottages for single Mom's and their children, and an additional home for widowed women with no family. Moms and widows helping to care for the children and the children serving the widows and Moms.
In our Forever Family Home we would like to provide permanency for more children, take temporary placements and provide respite care for other foster/adoptive/single parent families. This will help these families have a safe place for their children while they work, need a break, or are in transitioning period. And, be a safe family home environment for children who would otherwise enter into the foster care system.
We have a community center in our dream goals with a complete library filled with a variety of resources and tools for families who have children with special needs.
Additionally, we will have a suite for traveling families who are coming through our area and need a place to stay while receiving their newest additions to their families through adoption.
Another goal is to raise up, provide for, and shepherd over other homes for orphaned and fatherless children in our community and in other nations. These will be homes where the children will have permanency-a forever family; free from fear or hindrance to their growth. Placing widows and single mothers in homes to care for their children and other orphans and having the community in which they live become the father to the fatherless.
We are praying, asking, and believing the Lord to send those who can see the vision and prayerfully consider how they might partner with us in bringing this vision to its fullest potential.
We will be a place where families can get together and encourage one another, and learn to live in community with each other so no one is lacking. We will be a place where other families can come for prayer and spiritual needs to be met. We will provide a place for foster parenting meetings to be held as well as special events surrounding our ministry and other community organizations who have the same purposes in mind.

As the warmer weather arrives and we start on our breaks for spring, it is inevitable that we might have some unscheduled, unplanned, and maybe even uninvited events happening. Especially, if we have children at home! Schedules change. Days are longer. More meals and activities to plan. Don't allow the extra time to be burdensome. There is no need to be overwhelmed or to grow weary. Seek the Lord early and roll your works over on to Him so your plans will succeed. You will be thankful you did, and so will your children.

Every person I know is believing the Lord for an answered prayer, a healing, a financial breakthrough, food on the table, a loved one's salvation, a friend, a miracle of some sort. Sometimes its a much larger miracle needed, but even so, God can, and wants to, make a way. Often times the miracles are very doable and can be found right within the community of people in which we fellowship. Read More...Click here
