TruLight127
Ministries

Our name is our mission, which is to shine truth and light into the world of hurting children by putting James 1:27 into action.

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."

James 1:27

We are a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization here to serve the needs of the underprivileged. We want to stop the flow of children from “aging out” of the system and keep them in a stable home while in the system; preventing them from becoming a statistic of hopelessness.

We seek to do this by:

  • being their voice in a world that ignores them,
  • supporting them with tangible services to meet their real needs,
  • empowering them with the knowledge and self-esteem they need to pursue their dreams,
  • and supporting the families that care for them.

Our program of supportive services adds a community component to our mission of foster placement. We will empower and equip individuals, communities, and churches to move in God’s call in James 1:27 to care for the orphans. By doing so, we can change the course of their lives to be a productive citizen of society full of hopes, dreams, and ambition to do more.

TruLight127 is contracted with and receives funding from the Department of Family and Protective Services for the purpose of licensing foster families and placing children in licensed homes.
