Despite efforts to try and keep them in their original homes, new children enter foster care every day in the tri-county area. Hundreds of these children, especially those without relatives who can care for them, find themselves on the outside of a safe and loving family environment. There is a crisis shortage of foster homes. Our dream is for families, connected and supported through their faith community, to step into the gap of caring for these children. 884 represents social workers no longer scrambling for placements, the hope of siblings staying together, and mutual transformation of children receiving a chance to thrive and families impacted by caring for them.
We currently have 49 families towards our goal of 884.
