Pastor & Church Staff Breakfast; The Church's Role in Serving Vulnerable Children through Foster Care & Adoption

08:00 AM - 09:30 AM

Description:

Project Belong VA is hosting Pastors & Faith Leaders across Northern Virginia to learn more about the role of the church in caring for vulnerable children in foster care or needing adoption. Did you know that Virginia is among the WORST states in the country for children who "age out" of the foster care system? That means children in foster care, once they hit a certain age, have no where to call home and no family support. And the things that bring children into foster care often have nothing to do with them. We believe that every child deserves a family. To that end, we want to help churches navigate the sometimes complicated journey of becoming more engaged in the lives of these vulnerable ones. Not everyone will be called to foster or adopt, but everyone CAN make a difference. What's YOUR church's next step? Project Belong VA will help you walk the journey.
