SCCH’s foster care ministry is seeking Christ-centered families who will provide a safe home for children currently in the state’s custody, who are in need of temporary care. Our vision is for everyone involved in each child’s life to come to the table – biological parents, foster parents, SCCH, DCFS and the child. Jesus spent a lot of time building relationships around tables, and we believe that this is where the kingdom work takes place. We have a holy opportunity to impact local families by enveloping them in the love of Christ. This is the gospel beautifully displayed.
Foster parents are Christians willing to invite the messiness of broken families into their lives and homes in order to share Christ’s love. There are more than 5,000 kids in the foster care system in Arkansas alone, but only 1,600 open foster homes. SCCH needs homes full of love, patience, understanding and flexibility to meet the ongoing needs of children who have come from neglect, abandonment or abuse. A foster child may stay in care anywhere between a day to several years. SCCH needs foster parents who will choose to open their hearts and homes to children and then return them to their families when possible.
SCCH is licensed by the State of Arkansas as a Foster Care Placement Agency. The highlighted counties in the northwest quadrant of the map below are the counties we recruit from within.
