Millions of children worldwide are growing up without birth parents. In California, there are over 60,000 children who need a home for a short time or a lifetime—the number has tripled in the last 20 years.
The statistics are staggering, but God has a loving plan for each child, and His plan includes us. Compassion and involvement are our response to the love God has shown us.
In Modesto and our surrounding area, there are more than 600 children who are in and out of foster care. Our passion is to first help families stay together, but in the cases where this is not possible we want to see every child in a loving home. Since there over 600 congregations and so many amazing people in the Modesto area, this goal is really obtainable!
Our God, from your sacred home you take care of the orphans… you find families for those who are lonely. Psalm 68:5-6 CEV
