Healing children from abuse and neglect starts here.

DONATE NOW

Transforming the lives of children who have experienced abuse and neglect.

Every week, 126 new children in Georgia are removed from their homes and placed into the foster care system by the Division of Family and Children Services due to abuse, neglect, addictions, violence and more. These numbers are heartbreaking and tragic, but they are very real numbers representing very real children who we cannot ignore. We want to ensure that every child who comes into the foster system is nurtured in a loving, safe foster home where they will have the opportunity to heal and experience the love of Jesus.
