Northshore Enduring Hope

This is the village at work on behalf of kids and families in the system! Through James Storehouse outreach, we were able to connect resources to the foster parents who attend this region’s first and only foster parent support group, Northshore Enduring Hope led by Doree Kelly. Southeastern Louisiana’s Pi Beta Phi Alumni Club came and offered a literacy program from Pre-K to 3rd grade. With kids lagging behind in reading due to family struggles and many transitions, this is a welcomed resource. Mercy Print Ministry was also in attendance to offer ongoing support to foster families and special event coordination for the kids to have fun outings on occasion. Ms. Terrilynn Bowe, a supervisor for child welfare, was also there to be a bridge of support and liaison which helps to strengthen the relationship between fosters and the system. Thank you to everyone working on behalf of the children! We love seeing all these empowering connections happening in our hub of love.

James Storehouse Louisiana Grand Opening at New Location!

At James Storehouse, WE HAVE A DREAM… to see every child in foster care, and youth in transition, connect to loving homes and empowering communities.

Come join us for lunch at the Grand Opening for our NEW location on JANUARY 17th and hear about how we are transforming out of being a resource center into being a family center that will better serve our kids and families. Come see us and find out how YOU can be a part of the village.

While you grab lunch on us, we will be sharing our vision and plan to ensure loving homes for the many children coming into foster care. We are also launching new initiatives in 2017 that will empower “youth in transition” by providing resources and opportunities to meet their educational, employment/career, and social needs. Building a strong community network around our youth, and their families, is foundational to all we do. We are not just desiring better outcomes for our youth. We want to see them thrive!

Transitioning Youth

Transitioning YouthYoung people transitioning out of foster care are significantly affected by the instability that comes with long periods of out of home placement, multiple school transfers, and the challenge of preserving relationships with their biological families. They are also at increased risk of adversity. Older foster youth face many hardships such as, inadequate educational preparation, unstable finances, and limited access to viable employment and housing opportunities. Sadly, thousands of youth transition out of foster care with inadequate life skills and scarce resources and struggle to confront and overcome these challenges.

That’s why we at James Storehouse – Louisiana have set up a donation page to assist these youth in this time of transition. You can make your tax deductible donation on our Donations Page Here or http://jslouisiana.org/monetary-donations.

We also take donations for Transitioning Youth in other forms as well, such as gently used or new clothing, “Dressed-for-Success” clothing for job interviews, sundries, shoes, etc.
