We minister to one family at a time, every 30 minutes.

In respect of everyone's time, if you schedule an appointment and you are a no-show- you will not be allowed to schedule an appointment the following month. It is crucial that appointments are kept or rescheduled so others may benefit.


I thank God for ALL you do to take care of His children!

Registration for Parent't Day Out at The Oak Church is Open. 

REGISTER HERE

Fostering Dreams Foundation is doing an Angel Tree this year! This  angel tree is for foster youth only between the ages of 5 through 18! Spread the word to your foster parents about this amazing opportunity! Fostering Dreams will host their 2nd Annual Foster Parent Night Out in December and the foster youth that sign up for the Angel Tree will be able to attend and receive their gifts! 
 
Foster Parent Night Out is where our organization provides fun filled activities for foster children and allow their foster parents to drop them off and have free time for a few hours! The children are fed dinner and dessert while at Foster Parent Night Out. 
 
Background checks are completed on all volunteers and we strictly enforce a 2 adult supervision system! No child will ever be left alone with only one adult. Safety is our top priority! If you have any questions, contact us today! 
 
 

Mini Farmers Market Inc, completed it's first distribution in conjunction with SWAGG Programs, and it was a success.  We look forward to growing this ministry and helping many families in our community.   

Please advise, invoicing via pay pal is available and preferred.  We will soon offer the option to process credit and debit cards.  Please advise that pre orders are encouraged.


Ferst Readers has a program for DALLAS residents only.  This service mails a child a book on a monthly basis - up until the age of 5.  Any child in Dallas County is eligible.

 

I spoke with the regional director and advised this is a service we would like to offer to our children.  As long as the child's address is updated when they leave our homes, they can continue to receive their books.   If the address is not update, the foster parent would just cancel the subscription.




Free Books Every Month for Children in Dallas County

Ferst Readers, in partnership with the Boone Family Foundation and United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, announces our Once Upon a Month literacy initiative, providing wonderful books to children, birth to five, and useful literacy resources to their parents, mailed to the home every month!

The program is currently available to children, under the age of five, that live in Dallas County.

To get started, simply fill out the registration form below.

For those families with children under five who live outside of Dallas County, please check back as our program continues to grow throughout Texas. To receive books now, and if you have the resources to do so, our program is available by subscription through our Read Ferst! program (click here).

For more information, or to help start a program in your community, contact us at: 888-565-0177 or email 

To help support our Dallas program, tax deductible contributions can be made to United Way of Metropolitan Dallas HERE.
