Baptist Children's Homes of North Carolina and the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina have come together to offer EVERY CHILD Foster & Adoption Ministry. Our mission is to ensure that every child in North Carolina receives the caring home he or she deserves.
With over 16,000 children in the North Carolina foster system, we believe that the church is the answer! We train and license couples in churches to be foster families for these boys and girls who are in desperate need. We also work with pastors and their staff to establish a foster and adopt ministry within their churches to surround the couples and the children they foster with the support needed to help them thrive.
According to the Christian Alliance for Orphans (CAFO), there are currently just over 8,000 licensed foster homes in North Carolina. With over 16,000 children in foster care, there is a significant need for loving Christian families to step in the gap and become licensed foster families.
Does that seem like a BIG ask? We have a BIG God! Through willing churches partnering with EVERY CHILD Foster & Adoption Ministry, we could see every child in North Carolina receive a safe, caring, Christian home.
