“For every book bought, another is gifted to a child in foster care. When you open your heart and your home to children who have endured trauma, you make it possible for them to hope and dream again. We have requirements prospective foster parents must meet, and to become licensed, individuals must go through 5-7 training classes, pass a background test and have their home inspected. Our staff provides ongoing support and encouragement for those who are sharing the love of Christ in this powerful and life-changing way.

We have opportunities around the state for licensed foster parents to live rent-free in homes maintained by One More Child. Through our innovative Foster Family Home model sibling groups get to stay together in these multi-room, fully furnished homes and individuals who do not currently have the space or accommodations to care for several foster children have all they need to succeed.”
