Joining Together to Make a Difference

“Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of the orphans.” Isaiah 1:17

The Crisis

Indiana’s rate of child abuse and neglect is over
2x the national average.
After the first year or first placement roughly
50% of foster parents quit.
Children who have aged out of foster care to ever earn a college degree is
less than 3% chance.

Vulnerable children in Indiana need loving, Christian families and these families need support.

The Solution

Everyone can do something. Your church is invited to join a movement of churches across Indiana serving as a unified Body of Christ so there is
Foster homes for every child
Adoptive families for every waiting child
Help for every biological family
Wraparound support for foster families

By coming together we can bring safety and love to vulnerable children and their families.

Churches want to help but often don’t know how.
We are here to empower and equip your church to meet the needs of children in foster care.
