Our Foster Family Community Is Ready
Construction on our first two homes in the Foster Family Community is completed! Each home has 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a large family room, kitchen and dining room, laundry room, and a bonus room upstairs.
As soon as the Fire Inspection and DHEC Inspection is complete, they will be ready to start receiving children who need a safe home.
Come See What You Helped Us Build!

Meet The families
Meet Jason and Amy Reese, our first family to commit to Calvary’s Foster Family Community. Jason and Amy were married in January of 2014 after meeting at their alma mater, Southern Wesleyan University. While Jason and Amy knew fostering and adopting were going to be the way in which they grew their family, they wanted to wait 5-8 years to travel, get debt free, and grow in their marriage. However, after the sudden death of Amy’s brother just two years after their wedding, they decided to take in his two- year old son. Fast forward thirteen months, and the Reese’s were licensed to foster though Miracle Hill and taking in a fourteen-month old boy as their first official placement. They adopted their nephew, Michael, in October of 2018 and adopted their first placement, Mathis, in February of 2019.
Amy says, “We are so proud of this project and honored to be a part of the Foster Family Community at Calvary Home. Calvary’s forethought to reduce barriers, like bedroom space, and provide additional support is unmatched. It will serve both the foster parents and the foster children in ways that are not even fully known yet. We are just so excited to move in and continue making a difference in the lives of kids from hard places.” Jason adds, “There will certainly be a cost associated with undertaking this and I’m not talking about a financial one. But, if we don’t, it will cost the kids and our community so much more. They need stability and safety. Calvary is broadening our reach to more kids, so we can provide for those in our community.”
