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

Monthly Meeting - May 8 - 6:30-8:30

Understanding the Legal Process as a Foster Parent.

Speaker: Deena Roberston, MSW

This class will focus on the types of hearings and purpose of those hearings related to a child dependency case. Participants will also learn what type of information they may have about their child that is relevant to the case and how they can appropriately provide that information to the court. Further, participants will understand the various parties that are present and/or represented in the courtroom and the purpose of those participants.


Please register by May 4 and include the names and ages of any children. This helps us balance our classroom childcare needs.
