“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 68:5 was established in 2008 to provide connection, community, and funding to families that were compelled to move toward adoption in compassion for the orphan.
Legacy 68:5 derives its name from Psalm 68:5-6a, believing firmly that it is God who forms and restores all families and that His healing work is accomplished through the commitment of adoptive and foster families as well as global caregivers to orphaned and vulnerable children.
We know that this work is beautiful but difficult and just begins at placement. Our commitment is to come alongside pre- and post-placement families and caregivers to connect, equip, and sustain them, providing hope in the midst of the journey.

Opportunities may vary by campus; however, we invite you to join us for any class that would benefit you and/or your family. Agency training hours are available upon request.
Created to ConnectEvery Wed, Aug 31–Oct 12 @ 6:30p — Rm 111
"Every baby comes into this world looking for someone that’s looking for them." (Dr. Curt Thompson) Made in the image of a triune God, we are created to connect. Children that come from hard places include children that have experienced difficult pregnancy, difficult birth, early hospitalization, abuse, neglect, trauma and children who have been adopted or fostered. Join us for a 6 week class as we look at parenting strategies to help us understand our children and foster healthy attachments with them.
