Foster Care System

"Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute." Proverbs 31:8

Texas has over 34,000 children in the foster care system. Please pray for Texas Baptists churches as they engage in foster care and adoption ministry.

What can you and your church do to help?

  • Encourage those in your church to become foster families.
  • Provide respite care, or provide a meal for foster families.
  • Collect diapers, clothing, or furniture for foster families.

  • Pray for the church to mobilize in support of those currently in the child welfare system in Texas.
