The CALL in NWA
The CALL is mobilizing the church in Arkansas to love foster children with the extravagant love of Christ, by equipping the Body of Christ to care for foster children through foster care, adoption, support ministries, and giving. When there are not enough foster homes in a county, a child coming into foster care will be sent to another county with an available foster home. A sibling group may be split up if a home that will take all of them can’t be located and may end up in different counties. Not only was the child removed from a home situation, but now everything else changes too: new school, friends, and all the familiar landmarks are gone. And the distance can make healing and reunification all that much harder.
The CALL’s vision is to have more than enough foster homes available, so that when a child or sibling group needs foster care, the best home for that child or children can be found in their community.
