The mission: to recruit and train community members to love, care for, and support vulnerable children and their families within DHS and before they enter DHS foster care.

In response to Jesus' command to care for the most vulnerable in our community, churches are stepping forward to transform our community through radical and unprecedented support of children and families in crisis.

Every Child recruits, screens, and trains caring community members to support vulnerable children and families through DHS hospitality, adult education, prevention efforts, meeting tangible needs, and foster family recruitment and support. 

Though not everyone can care for at-risk children directly, we can all do something to care for our community's children and families. Learn how you can help!
