What Makes Us Unique?

We’re reimagining and redesigning our approach to foster care through Jonah’s Journey.

Jonah’s Journey is an alternative to the state foster care system, providing temporary or long-term care for children of incarcerated women.  Many families are curious as to what makes Jonah’s Journey different from state run agencies – in fact, it remains one of the most asked questions to date.

Our Compensation Package

One significant difference is that foster parents (caregivers) through Jonah’s journey do not receive monetary compensation.  These families take in a child, or children, because they believe all children deserve safety, family, love, and an opportunity. Their actions are a response to God’s commands to care for “the least of these” and they share His heart for these young ones in need.

Our Passion

As a community, we strive daily to restore the lives of the children in our care by providing a loving and stable environment in which they may heal.  We know that loving a child means loving that child’s family.  We’re committed to providing encouragement, guidance, support, and love to not only the children in the care of Jonah’s Journey, but their families as well. The goal of Jonah’s Journey is always a safe and healthy reunification.

Jonah’s Journey caregivers give children a second loving family and a fulfilling life in a home where they can play, trust, sleep safely, learn, eat and grow to be healthy, Christ-seeking adults. If you are interested in becoming a caregiver, fill out the inquiry form.


Respite caregivers are also needed to give full-time caregivers time to rest and refuel. For families unable to commit to full-time caregiving, respite care is a valuable and crucial part of the Jonah’s Journey.  Please complete the inquiry form.
