foster care

The Lord... sustains the fatherless and the widow.

Psalm 146:9

Over 10,000 children go through the Washington State child welfare system every year, many of whom struggle with trauma and need  a higher level of emotional and behavioral care than your average child.  Without a permanent or lasting sense of family, once these children become adults, they face a high probability of becoming human trafficking victims, incarcerated, homeless, and/or becoming pregnant before their 19th birthday.  These children need not only a stable and loving home, but a community who can care for and support them and their families.
