Kim Bigler, Founder of James Storehouse Louisiana

Kim is the founder of James Storehouse Louisiana, a 501c3 nonprofit that provides for the unmet needs of children coming into the foster care system, and helps to transition those aging out of the system. She mobilizes communities on their behalf, starting in Los Angeles when she launched James Storehouse Inc. in response to learning the great need of this invisible population. Kim, and her husband Ben, are also foster parents. Contact Staci Schwittay/Operations (staci@jamessamaritan.org) for more information about the celebration.
