Adoption Swaption is a Mission founded in 2018 under the Open Door Baptist Church to serve and support Adoptive, Foster, Custodial, Kinship and Guardianship Families throughout Central PA by meeting their tangible and spiritual needs with Biblical Integrity.
We currently have a building and storage unit that are located in Jonestown PA. We have clothing, shoes, bedding, car seats, cribs, toys, play pens, walkers, high chairs, bedding and so much more! We hold Open Hours several times a week so that families may sign up to shop free of charge for their needs at our facility. We rely on volunteers and are a Non-Profit under the ministry of Open Door Baptist Church.
We also like to create relationships between foster and adoptive families. This includes dinners, activities and an online support group. It is so nice for kids adopted through the CYS system to make connections with peers who have similar backgrounds.
Each year we hold several events such as Christmas Parties, Summer Picnics and Bible Studies. We look forward to growing our Mission and the services we provide to the families we serve.
For many families, the desire to foster or adopt more children is strong, but the financial restraints of doing so are increasingly restrictive and often are sadly prohibitive.
To assist foster and adoptive families with the physical needs of clothing, equipment, and shoes while encouraging relationships between non-fostering or adoptive families with families who have or are fostering and adopting.
We have found that many in our communities are willing to help fill in the many needs, if those community members are made aware of the needs and presented with ways to fill them. So, that's what we seek to do! Provide a forum for sharing needs - from hot water heater repair to diapers - the needs of foster and adoptive families are great and small and constantly changing!
