As the Apostle Peter wrote, “He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live for righteousness; by his wounds, you have been healed.” (1 Peter 2:24) Because of Jesus, we have received hope, life, and purpose! Because of Jesus, we’ve been given everything!
No matter what we do at Pleasant Valley, whether it’s serving food to our homeless neighbors, ministering to foster children and families, having porch parties for our community, or sharing a potluck with each other, the reason we do it is so that we can share the good news of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
PV Foster Care is a network of members of all ages and stages who see the broken homes in our city and are moved to action. Our number one goal is to bring foster care from crisis to community.

Volunteer Needs: Full-time foster parents (especially for ages 6 and up), adoptive parents, respite parents (1-14 days), mentors for teens and young adults, support families, babysitters, meals, financial support and more. No matter where your gifts lie, there is a job for you.
