Journey Road Ministries’ Inaugural Golf Tourney July 19 to Support Foster Families

Smiley face

Rachel and Dean Draper became foster parents since her retirement from public school administration in SSISD. They soon discovered the plight of families which are fostering in the local area as well as across Texas. “The need is great for these struggling families. They can use help from the community, from everything from diapers to car seats, to qualified babysitters to encouragement and love. Journey Road Ministries non-profit organization was formed to help find resources within our own community to assist these families who are making their homes here among us in Hopkins County”. Here are some facts found on the website journeyroadministries.com plus information on how you can register a team in the 4-person Scramble on Monday July 19, 2021 at 8am at Sulphur Springs Country Club. Or, if you prefer, please consider donating to the Journey Road cause.

In 2018 there were…
Over 280,911 allegations of Child Abuse/Neglect in the state of Texas. 

​Almost 66,382 of these cases were confirmed.  

​Over 20,000 children were removed from their home for investigation,
or because of confirmed cases of abuse.

The total number of Texas children in CPS custody was 32,793.

THE NEED IS OVERWHELMING…

would you consider ‘standing in the gap’ with us to help these precious children and the families that are caring for them?


OUR MISSION

Journey Road is a new non-profit organization that hopes to strengthen foster families in their ministry to foster children. At our farm we have a facility that will provide a place to run, play, fish, learn, ride horses, and all kinds of other outdoor activities. We will provide a context for foster families to get much of the help they need as they give themselves to supporting the children that have been placed in their home. Beyond this, we hope that one day we will be a place where parents can learn life and parenting skills. 

The opportunities are endless with what the Lord has provided. We want to honor Him above all things by doing all we can to help hurting and confused children find His love and a safe and secure home.
