Community Volunteers Needed

The CALL in Arkansas is a volunteer driven faith base organization whose mission is to mobilize the church to rise up to the Biblical mandate in James 1:27: “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.”

The CALL in Izard, Fulton and Sharp Counties

Gary PhillipsThe Call in Izard, Fulton & Sharp Counties was started in a joint initiative by the Foster Parent Association of Izard, Fulton and Sharp Counties, The CALL in Arkansas, and DHS/DCFS in the three counties, Area 8 and Little Rock. Our organizing summit took place in July of 2009 and we began speaking in churches that month.

We recruit, train and support foster and adoptive families from churches in our community. The CALL helps to streamline the paperwork process, does the PRIDE training, and acts as a communication link with DHS/DCFS. We trained our first families in September of 2009, and look to have a training every six months, or more often if needed. We have a growing number of qualified back-up caregivers when respite help is needed, and are developing a CALL Closet to help with needs that foster and respite parents my have from time to time.We ask for your support through prayers, volunteering and donations, as you feel called.
