Since the organizations inception in 2007, co-founders Bill Hancock and Wayne Stolz are credited to leading FaithBridge to become one of the fastest-growing, private child-placement agencies in Georgia. The faith community bridges the gap between those who need help and those who want to help. The bridges are relational, economical and emotional.
- Relationally, we connect county and state government, biological and foster families, healthcare workers, community service providers and volunteers.
- Economically, we connect investors with a proven business model that is reframing the $8-billion foster care problem that is part of the $30-billion child and family welfare industry.
- Emotionally, we connect an entire community of caring individuals—professionals, pastors, lay leaders and volunteers—to children and families in loving, nurturing relationships.
- 700,000 children pass through the foster care system yearly
- 400,000 children are in foster homes on any given day
- Some children stay for a few nights, some stay for a few years
- 500 children needing foster care
- 100 foster homes
- Over 1,000 churches in that same county with thousands of loving, Christian families!
