Village Well

We are here to bless our community!

Village Well is a ministry of Newport Mesa Church to the foster, adoptive, and kinship families of our community.

Village Well was founded on the principle that strong and healthy children are products of strong and healthy families.  We believe The Church must function as a network of support to these families in much the same way a village is an unbroken network of support to its residents.  At the center of village life is the life-sustaining water source – the well – around which people gather to care for and support one another in everyday life.

Village Well provides tools for effective parenting, vital connections to other families and resources, opportunities to strengthen marriages, and a network of caring individuals who are dedicated to helping parents successfully raise the children entrusted to their care.

Village Well meetings events are held monthly, and are open to anyone currently fostering or has adopted, anyone thinking about fostering and/or adoption, and anyone interested in wrapping support around these families.  Village Well partners with Orange County Social Services, and is part of a thriving Orange County network of churches and faith-based organizations involved in foster care and adoption.

If you are interested in attending our meetings at Newport Mesa Church or events, becoming a volunteer, or just have questions, please contact us at

Our Next Monthly Meeting | March 13 | 6:30-8:30pm

“Navigating Sibling Dynamics: Blending Biological, Fostered, and Adopted Children” Speaker: Erin Kim

Each time a new child enters the home, the entire family dynamic is altered. In this class, we will explore the dynamic of sibling relationships and how each child is affected by changes in the family make-up. Learn tools and strategies to help the children in your home deal with the challenges of being a Resource Family and welcoming new children into your family. Receive two training hours.

Free childcare is available for the monthly meeting if you register by March 9.
