Come to an Info Meeting

Come explore what God may have for YOU to do in the life of a child in foster care in your community!

The first step is to attend a CALL Informational Meeting for prospective Foster and Adoptive Families, but also for anyone who wants to volunteer with or support The CALL in any way.

An Info Meeting is an excellent way to get an overview of the process, to hear from current foster and adoptive parents, to learn about volunteer opportunities, to get all of your questions answered, and to start the paperwork process, if you so decide.

Info Meetings are held regularly in The CALL counties.
