Inspired by our faith
We believe everyone deserves to be loved, connected, and safe. That’s why we work hard to ensure everyone has a supportive family. Read op-eds, news articles, and press releases to learn more about the work we’re doing – and how you can get involved.
More than 250,000 children enter foster care each year. What if the answer is recruiting more communities to get involved and to help support families before children are removed from their homes?
There’s no doubt our country is covered in chaos. We are called to provide for the welfare of children in need, specifically in the arena of foster care. This is where the church must be—right where people are hurting.
This method is surprising when you consider that the United States rejected large-scale, institutional care 110 years ago. It harms children, and we shouldn’t accept it today for children who are seeking refuge within our borders.
Keeping children close to what is familiar, even when in foster care, can have lasting positive effects for their growth, education and sense of identity as they navigate this tumultuous time.
