Purpose

The purpose of One Heart Family Ministries is to recruit Christian parents for children in need of a foster or adoptive home. One Heart will assist in providing the necessary state training to become licensed foster and adoptive parents along with providing a Biblical foundation and perspective. We are the only Christian training offered in the St. Louis metropolitan area. One Heart also offers a network of support to their families after classes are completed and children join their family.

"Adoption is a journey of faith, from beginning to end."

One Heart desires to help all children who have been abandoned, abused, neglected or orphaned so they have a chance at a new life in a Christian family. One Heart teaches and encourages its families to love these children unconditionally and to help them through their pain and struggles by sharing Christ’s love and giving them hope for the future.

Families that are actively caring for these children are most successful with physical, emotional and spiritual support on how to provide a healing home. One Heart will walk each family through the training and placement process and continue to support each family with physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Social events are held throughout the year to bring families together to support one another along this journey.
