Keep Kids In Our Community

Every year, hundreds of children and youth are moved out of our region and often separated from siblings due to lack of foster families.

We have more abused and neglected children in our community than we have safe and loving families who are trained, equipped and supported to serve them. Though we have over 1,200 churches in our region, less than 4% have intentional efforts dedicated to this crisis. Children forced to be placed outside our community are often separated from siblings, move an average of 2-6 times until permanency, and face greater trauma from losing healthy relationships with relatives, teachers and friends. This can make visits with family sporadic and challenging due to distance.
