Every day more than 50 children are taken into care in the UK. They are removed from chaotic, traumatic, abusive, neglectful or desperate situations. Some of them need a home in an emergency. Some of them need a temporary home until they can return to their families. Some of them need an occasional home to give their families a break. Some of them need a permanent home with a new forever family.
The Church is uniquely placed to offer its help to meet this need – both in terms of finding families to foster or adopt and providing an excellent community of support to wrap around those who do.
Home for Good is a charity which aims to make adoption and fostering a significant part of the life and ministry of the Church in the UK. We are dedicated to inspiring, equipping and coordinating the network of local movements, churches and individuals who are making the Home for Good vision a reality. We raise awareness of the need for foster and adoptive parents, encouraging families to provide loving homes for the children in care, and equipping the Church to offer welcoming communities for them.
Being part of the solution to this need isn’t just wishful thinking. Through its web of connections, Home for Good has a voice into approximately 15,000 churches. If one family in each of these churches chose to foster or adopt, there would be no children in the UK without a home.
We believe that this is a fantastic opportunity for the Church to be good news in society, to change our communities, and to transform the lives of some of our country’s most vulnerable children.
Home for Good exists to find a home for every child who needs one. Will you help?
