FaithBridge Foster Care found in Milton

As seen in Alpharetta News and Revue, 07/02/10

MILTON - Bill Hancock, founder, CEO and president of FaithBridge Foster Care will be interviewed at Stonecreek Church in Alpharetta/Milton on Sunday, July 4 at 10:30 a.m. The church at 13540 Ga. 9 in Milton is also presenting Simply Summer Gatherings for the month of July with At The Movies. 

The movie of the week is "The Blind Side" which is about the power of a foster family on a child or young person. and Hancock will be informally interviewed by Ryan Martin, director of operations at Stonecreek about FaithBridge's mission in foster care. 

"Nothing shapes our culture quite like the movies, and movies help us uncover our story, face hard questions, consider our past and stir our unspoken hopes and desires," said Martin. "During our At The Movies series we will engage with stories from the big screen that have something to say about the bigger story of God's work in restoring life. 

"People will watch the movie, then join us on Sunday mornings to see clips and hear from someone who is actually doing something about the issue. FaithBridge is the call to action for foster care."

Martin had heard Hancock speak at a FaithBridge orientation and was moved by his story and his cause. He introduced Hancock to the church leadership team, where Hancock shared his story of how and why he started FaithBridge, and it was a natural fit for the movie "The Blind Side." 

There are more than 10,000 Georgia children in foster care. In addition, there are less than half of the necessary foster families to serve them. Currently FaithBridge has more than 63 foster and respite homes serving children and families from birth to 18, and is increasing monthly. 

To date, more than 150 children have been served in FaithBridge communities.
