Followers of Jesus should be compelled to love and care for children in our communities in need of families, whether temporarily through foster care, or permanently through adoption. Around one-third of practicing Christians in America have seriously considered becoming foster or adoptive parents… but only 3-5% actually have.
By helping churches think strategically about cultivating sustainable cultures of care and service to the foster care community, we believe we can help move the needle so that one day, there are more safe and supported families available to care for children experiencing foster care than children waiting for a family to care for them.
As churches, and networks of churches, grow their cultures to become actively engaged in the story of foster care, they:
RAISE UP foster families who can temporarily care for children experiencing foster care until these children can be reunited with their birth family.
RAISE UP FOSTER FAMILIES
who can temporarily care for children experiencing foster care until these children can be reunited with their birth family.
birth families working to provide a safe and loving home for their children.
foster families to support and encourage them along their foster journey.
adoptive families who are ready to welcome a child permanently if family restoration is not possible.
meaningful ways to engage for those who want to serve children and families impacted by foster care but who are unable to foster or adopt themselves.
