Welcome to the story. The story of restoration. The story of healing. The story of family. The story of God working here and now and today in the lives of the lost and the lonely. The story of families rediscovering hope. The story of children coming from hard places and being met with loving parents.
Thank you for entering the story by participating with FaithBridge to change the way America does foster care…one child, one family, one church and one community at a time.
The numbers are daunting. More than 400,000 children are in foster care on any given day. That means that nearly a million parents are unable to care for their own children and that others must step in to find care for them. In your state alone, there are thousands who are in need of a home. But when the numbers are broken down by the county and perhaps even your own zip code that surrounds your church, they are more manageable. It’s a problem that can realistically be solved by the Church entering the story.
You are invited to join us on an interactive journey through this blog to discover what drives FaithBridge at its core. Perhaps you will gain a more thorough understanding of the problem with foster care in America and why it is one that the Church cannot simply ignore. Perhaps you will be moved to take a step toward caring for vulnerable children. Or perhaps, as someone who is already caring for foster children, you will find valuable resources and helpful ideas straight from the mouths of other foster parents who have walked in your shoes before you.
Regardless of your background, experience and interest, we invite you to be a part of it, a story that God is already writing and that is a reflection of his heart to care for the fatherless.
