More than 660,000 nationwide per year and 400,000 per day. Nearly 8,000 in Georgia. Only 45-50 percent of the necessary families to serve them. The number of foster children needing care, and the lack of available foster families, at first seems overwhelming.

However, there are more than 400,000 Christian churches in our country, serving an estimated population of more than 100 million evangelical Christians. That's potentially 350 Christians for every foster child. Or conversely, two foster children for each church.

FaithBridge Foster Care encourages you to join us in solving our country's foster care crisis. Our strategy outlines a process to move "from crisis to community" and our model creates Communities of CareSM. We bring together child welfare agencies and workers, local churches, foster families and trained volunteers to ensure the best possible placement for each child. Together, we can restore our communities and families.
