Fostering Faithful Families

Welcome to Fostering Faithful Families!

Welcome to Fostering Faithful Families! 

Missouri has more than 13,000 children in the foster care system. Some of these children go to live with family members, but the rest live in non-relative foster homes.  As the number of kids in care continues to grow, so does our need for loving, committed foster homes for them.    Fostering Faithful Families is a ministry through Good Shepherd Children and Family Services, which is a part of Catholic Charities.  And our goal is to work with local churches to do everything we can to meet this great need in our area!

While not every family is called to open their home to a child in need, everyone can be involved in caring for God’s children. Take time to explore how the Lord may be asking you to serve those who are desperately in need of our help. This ministry's mission is to educate church communities about the needs of children in foster care, to create support systems for foster/adopt families, and to recruit new foster/adopt families. As a church community, we need to follow Christ and wrap our arms around these families as we journey together to find loving homes for God's children.
