Exciting things are happening in Cleburne County

UPDATE FROM THE CLEBURNE COUNTY COORDINATOR

We have families coming forward to become foster parents! Thank you churches for getting the word out about the needs of children in foster care in our community. We set prayer as our main focus this year and we are trusting God to bring families to us instead of stressing and worrying all the time. This is such a better plan!

Another area where we could tend to stress and strive over is in the area of finances, yet God continues to amaze us each month with a blessing we didn’t see coming. Because we recruit, train and support our foster families on donations and because all of our leaders are volunteers, community support is vital! We are very thankful to those who give in any capacity to help us find Christian homes eager to nurture hurting children.

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month
