Church Partnerships


CALLED to Serve...

There are children all over the United States right now, asking themselves, “When is someone going to help me?" "Who is going to love me?" "Does God really care what happens to me?" "Does God even exist?”

For those 400,000 children and teens in the US foster care system asking those questions, we, the church, have the answer. As believers, we have the opportunity to show them God’s love by extending a hand and opening our homes to serve their needs. We have the opportunity to reflect God’s image as a redeemer, defender, provider and father. We have the calling to live out James 1:27.

We are actively raising awareness of and recruiting foster & adoptive families for waiting children and we need the help of the churches to do that. How might God want to use your church? There is a historic orphan care movement taking place in churches across the globe, one that is changing lives and providing hope for those who have never known hope.


Take ACTION...

Church Partnership – We believe that the local church plays a key role in solving our country's foster care crisis. If not in the churches, where will we find the Christ-centered homes we so desperately need? Will you allow us to inform and educate your congregation? It will only take us five minutes… Have a Bair foster care professional speak in your church.

Pray – To help foster children, we have to get on our knees; crying out to God on behalf of these children, their birth families, their foster families and their social workers. Things you can pray about...

Donate – Many foster and adoptive families get a call from their agency and learn that they will be receiving a child in a very short period of time. These children often arrive with very few personal belongings. Your financial contribution makes it all possible…

Help – You can come alongside foster parents and offer help and support in a number of ways, from providing babysitting or relief care to helping a foster family cover the cost of their foster child participating on a soccer or baseball team, taking piano or dance lessons or getting involved scouts.



Change Who Waits

Brandy Hudson, an Independent Living Coordinator for the Commonwealth of Virginia and President of the Foster Care Alumni Association of Virginia speaks out at the Change Who Waits Rally at Grove Avenue Baptist Church, in Richmond VA. Brandy is a former foster child who entered foster care at birth and aged out without a family at age 18. Brandy encourages the Church to step up and put a stop to orphans leaving foster care without a family.


The Call is unmistakable. Learn more about the great need for foster parents and God's command for every Christian to help.
