Support by Fostering Love
May is National Foster Care Month. Around the country, the faith community is working with child welfare to recruit more foster families and increase funding for services as the number of children entering the system is increasing at an overwhelming rate. Having 5,734 Colorado children in foster care on a given day in 2017 is a problem, especially with only 2,200 licensed foster homes.. To confront this, we welcome friends, families, churches, and support team members to join Project 1.27 as we foster love during the month of May and beyond
There are many ways that we ALL can be a part of the solution by fostering love to kids in our own backyards.
Jason Weber rightfully reports that we need:
“More than enough foster homes for every child in care to have an ideal placement
More than enough adoptive homes for every waiting child to have a family
More than enough help for biological families who are trying to stay together and trying to get back together
More than enough support for foster, adoptive, and biological families”
How will you help FOSTER LOVE for kids in foster care?
