What Others are Saying:

WeFoster, the foster care ministry of First Baptist Woodstock, is indebted to Patch Our Planet for providing expertise, passion and creativity as we lead our families to foster. However, it is the experience that Patch Our Planet brings to the table that is most helpful.  Having a partner that has “been there and done that” is invaluable.  WeFoster benefits from the lessons learned by Patch Our Planet’s great network of orphan care supporters.


Patch our Planet is like having another staff member leading the effort to bring gospel-centered solutions to one of the great world needs.  We have greatly benefited from their approach – and we have quickly mobilized people and local churches to care for children in our region who are in need.”


Patch our planet is an amazing, action-oriented ministry that puts feet to our faith. I was honored to be a part of the founding board to launch this much needed ministry. The mission is strong, the vision is clear, and the purpose intentional. With Patch Our Planet in place, the hurting children of our nation and world will be helped and given the hope of Christ.


Patch Our Planet has played a key role in the strategy, design, development and launch of a region-wide initiative in Western NY called Every Child (everychild.com). Not only did they provide guidance on best practices throughout the country (in partnership with CAFO), but they focused on holistic community development, engaging the entire body of Christ, and the importance of our staff team (especially the lead pastor) helping to drive this initiative. That kept our goals and objectives clear.
