Preparing Hearts and Homes for Kids in Foster Care

Can you imagine what it would be like to not have a family? No one to help you with homework. No one to attend your sporting events or music recitals. No place to go for the holidays. This is a reality for kids in Alabama who are waiting in the foster care system.


At Focus on the Family, we believe that the Church can be the answer for these kids and that God has called us all to “care for the least of these.” Thankfully in Alabama, there are churches full of people who can help!

Join Focus on the Family, in conjunction with Lifeline Children’s Services, for this FREE event in Birmingham, August 20, 2022 that will help you understand God’s heart for vulnerable children in foster care. Learn about foster care and adoption, and practical ways you can support foster and adoptive families. Engage with experts who will answer your questions, and discover your role in God’s plan. Whether you are considering fostering a child, adopting, or supporting a family who does, attending this event will help you explore the vital part you can play in your community and for His kingdom.
