Our vision is to see eLifers connect to God’s heart for vulnerable children and families in our community.

The following is a list of practical “next steps” you can take to begin making a difference in someone’s life.

Take the ALL IN Orphan Care Class

The 6-session ALL IN Orphan Care Small Group Curriculum is designed to help establish a growing culture within churches and seres as an equipping resource for individuals and families who are interested in learning more about getting involved in caring for the orphans.

Babysit for an eLife Foster Family

Did you know foster parents can’t hire a regular babysitter? If they want relief, they are required to get an agency-trained and approved caregiver. Whether you know a foster family or just want to be added to our list of approved babysitters, this is an easy opportunity with great impact.

Become a Mentor

When adults mess up, children are left to pick up the pieces. Often they never recover unless a loving adult shows up in their life. So what does a mentor do? The simple things are the biggest: get ice cream, go to a movie, throw a ball, help with homework, or take them shopping.

Volunteer at an upcoming Foster Life Event

At eLife we are huge fans of foster families! In fact, we value them so much that we have created a special community just for them called Foster Life where eLife foster & adoptive families can find support and fellowship with other families. We offer a wide range of activities for them, which opens up some fantastic opportunities for everyone else to serve and support.

Foster or Adopt

There are so many children in Lubbock, and around the world, who desperately need the love and security of a family and also a place to call home. You can respond to the need of abused and neglected children by becoming a foster parent and/or adopting a child.
