About Philip

Who we are:

Philip Pattison is the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Foster the Bay, a coalition of more than 100 Bay Area churches working together to provide a loving home for children in foster care. Philip and his family reside in San Jose, California.

We’ve been missionaries since:


What we’re doing:

Our Mission is provide a loving home for every child in foster care.

The Bible says God sets the lonely in families, so we know that He longs for children in foster care to be placed in loving, supportive homes. The Church is uniquely commissioned to this task. We inspire and equip local churches with tools, resources, and support that enables them to develop a sustainable, effective foster care ministry. Together, we are working toward the day when the list of children waiting for a home will be replaced with a list of families waiting to share their homes.
