In 2013, High Street decided to implement an adoption fund to help families adopt a child (or children). We do this because God loves the fatherless and orphans are close to his heart!

Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this:
to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
James 1:27

Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression;
bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow's cause.
Isaiah 1:17

Adoption Policy

    Distribution of Funds

    The amount of money given cannot exceed the fund balance.
    The amount of money distributed will be determined by the adoption fund committee.
    Funds will only be distributed to an approved agency.
    Financial assistance may be provided to to families who are approved.
