“A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy habitation. God sets the lonely in families.” Psalm 68:5-6a
Legacy 685 was established in 2008 to provide connection, community, and funding to families compelled to move toward the miracle of adoption in compassion for the orphan. The CORE values seeded in those early years have grown to a depth that have both compelled and sustained the ministry over the last ten years.
Legacy 685 now seeks to connect families to families as well as financial resources, equip families with relevant, Biblical, trauma- informed resources and sustain foster and adoptive families on their healing journey.
Legacy 685 derives its name from Psalm 68:5-6a, believing firmly that it is God who forms forever families and God who sustains families for the duration of the healing journey. Legacy is defined as “something received from an ancestor or predecessor.” In this case, Legacy 685 speaks to the power of the redemptive and restorative legacy through adoption. (Eph. 1:3-10)
Throughout the past ten years, Legacy 685 has faithfully served adoptive and foster families in the greater Houston area. Freely we have received, and it is with that same generosity that we give of our resources, time, and care with the profound hope of seeing children and families restored and living abundantly in the joy of permanency.
