Vulnerable children in your community

Many children who are unable to reunite with their families are older or have special placement needs. Meanwhile, children continue to enter foster care at an alarming rate.

More than 260,000 children entered foster care last year alone, in need of a temporary home to keep them safe.

Strengthening families

Every child belongs in a nurturing, protective family. Sometimes, a loving foster family is the safest place for children who need temporary care and protection. But in many cases, we can help a child’s biological parents become better equipped to care for them. And that can be a far better outcome for everyone involved.

Bethany deeply values every human life – from the unborn child to the youth aging out of the foster care system, from the family working hard to stay together to parents who make an adoption plan. We follow Christ’s example by demonstrating love and compassion to all, upholding justice, and dismantling inequitable systems. Positive change for the most vulnerable starts with first hearing their voice. Only then can we help communities implement positive solutions and truly keep kids safe.
