Welcome New Van Buren County Coordinators, Kenny & Keri Wyatt

The CALL in Van Buren County is pleased to introduce our new volunteer County Coordinator, Kenny Wyatt and his wife, Keri Wyatt. Kenny and Keri have been through the PRIDE certification process through The CALL in Van Buren County to open their home as a foster and adoptive home. The Wyatt’s were foster parents many years ago but closed their home when their precious daughter Emma entered the world. Now, Emma is older enough to be a great sister to any child fortunate enough to be placed with the Wyatt family. Kenny is employed by Shirley Independent School District and Clinton ISD employs his wife, Keri. Their passion to help foster children and foster families is genuine. The Wyatts are longtime residents of Van Buren County and intend to take this opportunity to influence others to join in the march to mobilize the church to recruit, train and support Christian families to provide a safe place for the foster children in Van Buren County.  They desire to work alongside the leadership team to recruit enough foster families to care for the foster children from Van Buren County. The goal is to have every Christian church actively involved in achieving the mission of The CALL in Arkansas by empowering Van Buren County.

Our First PRIDE Training is complete!

These six families completed our very first class of PRIDE training this past weekend.  We are so excited to see what God has in store for these families.  We had five future CALL foster families and one family training with us for DCFS.  These families attended our October and November Informational Meetings, and one is our very own Laura, and her husband Stan, who serves on our leadership team and as our Financial Coordinator for our local CALL affiliate. We did not know these families well when they came to our first set of informational meetings after we launched in September, but now we have grown to care so much about them and we look forward to loving on them and their families as we support them in the year ahead!

Our three PRIDE trainers, Christy, Amanda and Tara, did a great job on their first PRIDE training, and they put in a lot of long hours over the two weekends with these families and we appreciate them for that!

If you are interested in learning how you can answer the CALL, and become a foster or adoptive parent, or volunteer in Pike or Montgomery County, our next informational meeting is March 13th @ First Baptist Church of Murfreesboro at 6 pm.  We would love to share more about what we are doing to bring foster families to our local area! Register for the next meeting at https://www.tfaforms.com/441691.
