“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 that were compelled to move toward adoption in compassion for the orphan.
Legacy 685 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.
Interested in learning more about adoption, foster care, or how to connect with other families? Fill out our interest form below, and follow us on Facebook and join our newsletter for the latest news and updates!
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.
We have two opportunities to grow at The Loop: Life Bible Study on Sunday Morning at 9:15a and Milestones during the fall and spring semesters on Wednesday nights at 6:30p with dinner and childcare available through MidLink.

This infertility support group was created to walk alongside those struggling with the grief of difficulty conceiving whether it's infertility, miscarriage, prolonged “waiting” or those waiting to adopt. There is hope to be found during this season of waiting. Genuine, life-giving help can come from others walking this journey together. Our goal is that this group and our events would be a source of hope, strength, insight, freedom and honest heartfelt encouragement to those walking through what can feel like a very long and rocky path. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for questions or specific meeting dates.
For those with a heart for orphaned, adopted, or foster children
Every Sun @ @ 9:15–10:30a — The Loop (Rm 503)
