The need in Pope County

Thank you to Sorrells Body Shop for their generous donation to The CALL in Pope County!!! We couldn’t do what we do without support from our community!!!

Like every county in Arkansas, there is an urgent need for foster and adoptive homes here in Pope County. The number of children in foster care in our county greatly exceeds the number of foster homes we have available to care for them. As of June 2017, there are approximately 100 kids in foster care in Pope County with only 25 foster homes available to care for them. These children need a loving home in a community that is familiar to them.

God has given the Church an amazing approach to caring for local children in foster care and those available for adoption. If just one family from each church in Pope County became a foster family, we would have an abundant supply of open homes for our local kids.

If you are interested in learning more about fostering, adopting or volunteering, please join us at our next informational meeting on Monday, July 31st at 6:00 p.m. at the The Christian & Missionary Alliance Church of Russellville (800 East 16th St., just down from the Boys & Girls Club).
