Preparing Hearts and Homes for Kids in Foster Care

On Saturday, May 18, 2019 approximately 224 people attended Wait No More at Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California to hear about the needs of waiting kids in California foster care. As a result, 110 families initiated the process of foster care, adoption from foster care or supporting families that do! This means that children in California will wait no more for the families they deserve.
