Annual HOPE Conference

Together with the Central Arkansas Orphan Coalition, The CALL made possible the annual HOPE Conference that was held at Fellowship Bible Church in Little Rock, March 4 and 5.
Over 400 families and volunteers participated, allowing many of them to complete their needed 15 hours of continuing education.

But wait, there’s more

A lot of focus is on recruiting and training new families to foster and adopt. But The CALL doesn’t stop there. In many ways, once a home is opened for foster or adoption, that’s when the real work starts. To help families succeed for the long haul with their foster or adoptive kids, The CALL held 126 support events around the state in 2016.

New beginnings

The concept of family is incredibly strong and we all need somewhere to belong, not just for holidays, but for doing life. We’re thrilled that 113 children were adopted by families recruited by The CALL in 2016.

Coming together for children in foster care

The CALL came to 2 counties on February 16: Garland and Hot Spring. The 2 counties will have one team working hard to increase the number of foster families and adoptive homes.

Training completed

In the course of 45 training events held in churches around the state, 332 families completed the required training to become a foster or adoptive family.
