The Problem: Foster care begins when a family has experienced ongoing distress that results in an unsafe environment for a child. Once removed from their home, children should no longer be at risk for their safety, but they can face the risk of the failure of the system and the suffering it brings, including; isolation, instability, inconsistency and desertion.
Our Solution: Without the involvement of each one of us, the foster care system will only cause more harm to an already broken child. Our engagement is the solution and causes the system to work as it was intended. “To foster” means “to promote development”, but the foster care system can’t function with foster families alone. Rather, the system requires the whole Church to engage in their role that responds to the developmental needs in the life of each child in care.
