Emma Roberson is that friend who asks good questions—the friend who is gracious, humble, and curious.
She cares deeply for the local church, and having stepped into foster care as a foster parent with her husband, Tim, at the beginning of this year, her eyes have been opened to the opportunities to support the foster care community.
Emma wants to be part of growing something special with her church—part of a kind and compassionate response to the needs she sees around her in the foster care space. She sees what an incredible gift it could be to both her church and her community.
“I get excited about people helping people help vulnerable children in my community. And as a believer, I have been witness to the power of God and His heart for those he knit together perfectly in their mother’s womb. The church has such an incredible opportunity here, and I would love to be the one to lead the charge at my church and in my community.”
Out of this desire to connect the church and the foster care community, Emma is launching TFI in Clark County, where she’ll continue learning about the needs in her community from DCYF.
She desires to invite her church “into the brokenness that is felt by children, families, and agencies involved in foster care and to be the hands and feet of Jesus to those that are caring for the most vulnerable among us.” We have a place in foster care ministry. Emma wants to help her church find theirs.
