There are over 400,000 children in the US foster care system.
Help make a difference. 

Welcome to Bair!

In a perfect world, every child would grow up and be nurtured in a loving, caring family, attend a great school and live in a community that supports their growth. Unfortunately, it’s not a perfect world, child abuse and neglect is real and over 400,000 children are placed in the foster care system each year. 

The Bair Foundation Child & Family Ministries exists to provide quality care & services in a family setting for children and adolescents who cannot remain with their families. The primary mission of our Foster Care program is to ensure the safety and well-being of foster youth while working with their families of origin in their reunification efforts. We accomplish this with support (Intensive In-Home & Family Services) and/or parental training (B.E.S.T. for Families).

When reunification is not possible, our goal is to find an alternative permanent and stable living solution which may include Kinship Care, Adoption, or Independent Living. If adoption is a viable option, The Bair Foundation actively seeks adoptive parents to move toward permanency.

Since 1967, The Bair Foundation Child and Family Ministries has brought hope, restoration and family preservation through a partnership of committed individuals, churches, corporations and government agencies.

You can help us change the future for this vulnerable population of young people. We are doing all we can, but we can't do it alone. Will you help us be the salt and light to a dark world of child abuse and neglect?
