… to provide a future and a hope to children in Arkansas foster care.
There are about 3,500 children in the Arkansas State Foster Care System at any given time. These children come into state custody through no fault of their own – it is because of abuse, neglect, or some other safety concern in the home. For instance, there are about 7,000 children in foster care in Arkansas within a year, and there are only about 1,100 foster families available to care for those children! Plus, there are over 500 children available for adoption through foster care in our state. It’s a crisis shortage!
It’s time for the Body of Christ to step up and meet the needs of these children in our own neighborhoods. We are asking you, if you are called, to care for one of these precious children through foster care, adoption, respite care, or volunteering in some way.
ReMoved follows the emotional story of a young girl, removed from her home by child welfare services and placed in a foster home. It’s all seen through her eyes.
