The CALL in Logan and Scott will have an Informational meeting July 11 at Glendale Baptist Church. The meeting will start at 6 p.m.
The CALL is an organization that works with churches to recruit and support foster and adoptive families. Currently Arkansas has 5,000 children in foster care and 2,000 foster homes.
Logan County has over 70 children in foster care and less than 10 homes to care for them.
From their website “Since 2007, The CALL has gone into churches to challenge people to do one of two things: foster or support those who are able to foster. Little by little, The CALL breaks down the barriers that have kept people from fostering for so long.
"Over the past 10 years, The CALL has answered the hard questions for numerous families. Once those questions were answered, many families were ready to start the foster care/adoption process.”
If you are interested in becoming a foster or adoptive family, you are invited to come to the meeting. If you have questions you can call 479-206- 2212 or 470-414- 0272.
