Sponsor a Child or Cottage

Sponsor a Child or Cottage

Thank you for your interest in serving as a child or cottage sponsor. Sponsors are a great source of encouragement to our children and cottage parents.

We provide residential care for children ages 5-17 and PathFinders Transitional Living for ages 18-21. About 90% of our children are placed in our care by the Louisiana Department of Children & Family Services (DCFS). DCFS recognizes us as a foster care community. Most of our children come from hard places in life and have been neglected, abused, or abandoned. DCFS policies require that we maintain the children's confidentiality, so information shared concerning the children will be limited.

Our children live in individual cottages where they are cared for by loving, Christian foster parents. They each have their own bedroom and bathroom. We try to "normalize" their lives as much as possible and show them what it's like to be part of a healthy, Christian family. They attend public schools, participate in extra-curricular activities, go to church, go on outings, and take vacations together just like any other family.







If you wish to pursue this ministry, please contact Matt Coker, Associate Director of Development and Public Relations, at or 318-343-2244 and he will match you with a child or cottage in need of your sponsorship. We value your friendship and partnership in this ministry. Thank you for caring!


Your gift provides love, care, and hope in Christ for children and families in need. 56% of all funding comes from individuals and churches. We receive no state or federal funding for the care of children. All gifts are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated.
