From Our Community
I continue to watch and walk alongside families as they lean into the Lord to lead them through this calling of caring for kids in need. Some come boldly and without fear and others come with questions and trepidation, but all come back to the knowledge that God is calling them to serve kids in need of safe and loving homes.Anonymous Area 1 Caseworker
My dreams for the youth in the foster care system is for them to find themselves and become a part of their version of a family. Family can mean many different things! I want them to love themselves for who they are. Self love is more important than you’ll ever know!Lauren Former Youth In Care
