2014 OK FOSTER CARE FORUM:
A MOVEMENT IN THE MAKING
For the past several years we have been mobilizing the Church (in all of its many expressions) on behalf of children in Foster Care and their families. We are committed to build a tribe of leaders, doers, practitioners, and advocates committed to leave No Oklahoma Child Without a Family. So, we are inviting you to come together with us tomorrow in this shared time and space for the sake of children in Foster Care.

The Christian Alliance for Orphans’ CAFO2014 Summit inspires and equips Christians to care for orphans with wisdom-guided love. Now in its 10th year, CAFO2014 has become the national hub for what Christianity Today called, “the burgeoning Christian orphan care movement.” Last year’s conference drew 2,500 foster and adoptive parents, orphan advocates, pastors and leaders from 49 states and 25+ countries. Together, we explore effective foster care, adoption, family preservation and global orphan ministry.CAFO is two full days. Pre-intensives being 9:00 AM Wednesday April 30th.
