Through Legacy 685, Houston’s First Baptist Church established the Adoption Assistance Fund in response to the overwhelming financial hurdles that often come with adoption. At the heart of the fund is the desire to be able to help as many children experience the joy of a “forever family” as our collective resources will allow.
Through the fund administrator, Lifesong for Orphans, Legacy 685 is able to offer direct grants, matching grants, and/or interest free loans to applicants who meet the established parameters.
In the first 10 years as a ministry, $1,051,581 has been given to the fund by 834 donors, and $966,700 more has been raised by individuals and couples seeking to adopt. Therefore, $2,048,281 has been mobilized to support the adoption of 162 children from 19 different countries.
