Tell us about your organization (how did it start, how is it run)?
Arkansas Baptist Children's Home and Family Ministries has served families in Arkansas for over 125 years and has expanded to multiple Christ-centered ministries across the state serving Arkansas families. Connected to Foster equips foster families to say yes to children from hard places. We place children in the highest quality foster homes because they are provided the highest quality professional services and practical support needed to successfully meet a childâ€™s needs. Our goal is to have an eternal impact on the lives of vulnerable children and their families. Our homes become a place of hope and healing, not just a temporary landing place for children.
As the ministry of Arkansas Baptist Childrenâ€™s Homes & Family Ministries has grown over the years, the mission has remained the same: healthy families for healthy futures.
What services does the organization provide?
