Statistics show people of faith are far more likely to adopt and foster.
Your faith community’s commitment to teach on God’s heart for vulnerable kids is an important catalyst to raising awareness of the need for foster and adoptive parents, and inspiring people to take the next step to explore how they are called to help.
For some the answer may indeed be to become a foster or adoptive parent. Yet for many others it may be a decision to care for families as they stand in the gap for vulnerable kids. When they say yes to joining a support ministry within your faith community or locally, they’re help to encourage and retain kinship and foster families. Their support is valuable and essential.
