TruLight127 Ministries could not do what we do for foster children without the support of our volunteers and donors — We call them our TruLight Angels.

Not everyone can foster or adopt, but support in the form of donations — monetary and physical goods — is the best way to show our foster children and foster families that they’re not alone.
