Obey The Call

Churches

Churches are in a unique position because not only should they be willing to take care of the vulnerable, they are called to. We encourage churches to find the foster families in their church and surround them with support, as well as serving the local foster community. It could be as simple as reaching out and offering a meal or to mow their lawn. You could host a small group on caring for the vulnerable or a support group for foster families. As a church you could host a night out or educational training for foster parents. Sign up and connect with us to find how your church can serve.
