The James Project is a not-for-profit Christian ministry in Springfield, Illinois which provides homes and support for fostering families in Sangamon County. We believe we can help fostering parents and the children they serve by providing homes large enough to enable them to care for the maximum number of foster children allowed by Illinois state law. The James Project also includes Closet 1:27—a ministry which serves hundreds of foster families each year by distributing clothing, beds, and necessities to newly placed foster children. We also understand the importance of having quality foster parents to care for the displaced children in our midst. Our Call 1:27 ministry was designed specifically to provide mentoring to prospective foster and adoptive parents.
Come experience practical teaching in a safe and supportive community as we work to equip families, churches, and professionals to better serve children, especially those who have experienced trauma or loss, including children impacted by adoption and foster care.
We are not all called to become a foster parent, but we are called to do what we can—and, we can all do something.
Through our extensive network of individuals, businesses, and churches whom are eager to provide many essential resources for our fostering families, our hope and prayer is to make the tough job of fostering easier as we help facilitate foster parents’ ability to provide a home environment where the children in their care will thrive.
