Is There Room in Your Heart and Family for a Child in Need?
Children thrive best in loving, safe, and nurturing families where they are encouraged to develop to their potential. Unfortunately, not all children are born into families that grant them this opportunity.
Helping Children in Crisis
Bethany Christian Services aims to strengthen the biological family and support the child through this crisis, so that the child can return home to a safe and nurturing family. Sometimes this involves providing quality temporary care for these children while their biological family heals and gets ready to reunite with their child.
Do you have the capacity within your family and your heart to help one of these children in need? Bethany offers many opportunities to provide care for these children.

There is a growing need for families willing to open their hearts and homes to children and teenagers who have been removed from their families because of neglect or abuse. These children need a loving family who will walk with them during a time of crisis and welcome them unconditionally into a caring home. The highest-priority need is for foster homes for sibling groups and children from minority groups.
Often refugee families are separated between the time they leave their home and when they arrive in the U.S. When this happens, family reunification is difficult and children are considered unaccompanied minors. The only option for these children is to be cared for by a refugee foster care family.
