There are about 3,500 children in the Arkansas State Foster Care System at any given time. These children come into state custody through no fault of their own - it is because of abuse, neglect, or some other safety concern in the home. Within a year, in Pulaski County alone, there are 1,100 children who come through foster care, and only 233 families to care for these children! It’s a crisis shortage!

It’s time for the Body of Christ to step up and meet the needs of these children in our own neighborhoods. We are asking you, if you are called, to care for one of these precious children through foster care or adoption.
