Why Become a Foster Friendly Faith Community?
Justice, mercy and grace are themes throughout scripture and most faith traditions.
People of faith already care deeply about these issues. Statistics show practicing Christians are three times more likely to foster and twice as likely to adopt compared to the general population.
Foster care is a non-partisan, unifying issue.
Foster care is an upstream issue. It is at the root of a number of current-day social wounds, including homelessness, sex trafficking, suicide and more.
Are you ready to learn how your faith community can take the next steps to become Foster Friendly?
