Our Vision

James Storehouse is inspired by the Bible verse, James 1:27, which “calls us to pursue religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless by providing for and looking after orphans and widows in distress.” James Storehouse answers this call to serve and support children in foster care and those aged-out of foster care. James Storehouse envisions a future where community members join together to care for those left vulnerable in our society, especially children in foster care.

Why We Care

There are over 500,000 children in foster care. Most face unimaginable rejection, neglect, abuse and abandonment. Children in the foster care system are more susceptible to a variety of challenges such as homelessness, incarceration, teen pregnancy, human trafficking, substance abuse, and limited education. Annually, over 20,000 age out of the system, many without the ability or support to transition effectively into independent living. James Storehouse is committed to providing a helping hand to children and youth facing such daunting challenges.
