Preparing Hearts and Homes for Kids in Foster Care

On Saturday, October 12, 2019 approximately 126 people attended Wait No More at Lenexa Baptist Church in Kansas City to hear about the needs of waiting kids in Kansas and Missouri foster care. As a result, 42 families initiated the process of foster care, adoption from foster care or supporting families that do! This means that children in Kansas and Missouri will wait no more for the families they deserve.

Special thanks to the agencies, ministries and organizations who were represented that day –RE: Conference, Colonial Presbyterian Church, Go Project / CarePortal, KVC Kansas, Fostering Joy, TFI Family Services, EmberHope, DCCCA, Missouri Baptist Children’s Home, KParc, Kansas Children’s Service League, Attachment and Trauma Therapy, Lifeline Children’s Services, Bott Radio, and the incredible staff and volunteers from Lenexa Baptist Church. The event would not have been possible without you!
