A Christ-centered, tax-exempt organization intent on
changing the way America does foster care,
FaithBridge Foster Care works with the local church to solve its
community's foster care crisis. FaithBridge partners with local
churches to create independent, church-led foster care ministries
around a small group model, called the FaithBridge Community of
CareSM, which provides Christian foster families with
unparalleled support and resources. This relationship-enhanced
model scales to create local foster family capacity with built-in
stability and quality, bringing children and families together in a
safe, loving community.
Our name is derived from our business model,
whereby the faith community bridges the gap between a large
societal crisis and individuals in need. The bridges we build are
relational, economic and emotional.
Relationally, we connect all the parties in the
foster care system--county and state government, biological and
foster families, healthcare workers, community service providers
Economically, we work to bridge investors with
a proven business model and strategy that aim to reframe the $8
billion foster care crisis.
Emotionally, FaithBridge Foster Care's strategy
and business model help bring together an entire community of
caring individuals--professionals, pastors, layleaders and
volunteers--who surround children and families in loving, nurturing
relationships and who help bridge the emotional traumas often
caused by neglect, abuse or other challenges.
Why the Church?
FaithBridge Foster Care believes the local
church and its community of believers is the solution to the foster
care crisis. The local church has a scriptural mandate to engage in
foster care ministry. And with its existing infrastructure, vibrant
ministries and caring congregations, the local church and its
community of believers can solve this crisis of
capacity, stability and
