Every day children are taken into care. They are removed from homes where there is usually great sadness and where they may have encountered chaotic, traumatic, abusive, neglectful or frightening situations.
– some of them need a home in an emergency
– some of them need a temporary home until they can return home
– some of them need an occasional home to give their families or carers a break
– some of them need a permanent home with a new family
York urgently needs more foster carers. The City of York Council has asked One Voice if Christians in York could provide 20 new foster care homes. The church is ideally placed to meet this need – both in terms of finding families that want to lovingly care for children and in providing a community of support to those who do foster, through prayer and practical support.
So why not make a difference and be part of transforming the lives of some of the most vulnerable children in York?
Come along to a meeting on 2nd November to meet other people interested in fostering, foster carers, and Council representatives responsible for training foster carers and ask as many questions as you like! Leaders, please make this opportunity known in your churches.
Sunday 2nd November 2014, 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM.
Elim Corner, First Floor 47 Lawrence Street, York, YO10 3BU.
Parking in car park behind building.
