Michelle Cain

Nic and Michelle Cain were married in 2006 while Nic was on leave from a deployment to Afghanistan. 

The Cain's are a blended family, and as they looked for a way to add to their family, their eyes were opened to the realities of the great needs of children in foster care in the United States.

They began understanding children in foster care children had experienced trauma and had complex needs that would need to be met in order to break the cycle of the breakdown of the family unit. 

Over time, as God continued to work on their hearts, Nic and Michelle were inspired to begin a backpack ministry to give items of comfort and necessity to children coming into foster care.
