Caring Families

Caring Families is a ministry of the local church that is comprised of a network of volunteer Christian families who will take in children from parents that may be temporarily unable to properly care for their children for a variety of reasons such as hospitalization, homelessness, drug abuse, or when a parent is remanded to a correctional institution for a period of time. Parents place their children voluntarily and temporarily with a Caring Family so they can have the time needed to address crisis issues without fear of losing custody. As a result many Caring Families become the extended family to a parent that is experiencing a crisis and needs help.
