We would like to invite you to this month’s Every Child Orientation! This is a great way to learn about the new Every Child initiative and discover a menu of different ways people are getting involved in bringing hope to vulnerable children in our community.

What is the child welfare crisis in Lane County? Today there is an enormous but quiet crisis occurring in Lane County: lack of care for the most vulnerable children, and, many of these children are in the foster care system.

Currently, there are so few foster families for these children that DHS is often forced to separate siblings and put them in homes bulging with 8-10 other kids. Simply these children are among our community’s orphans. Every child deserves a safe and healthy home and childhood which is deeply on the heart of God.

A new initiative called Every Child is calling our community to join together to help these children. There are many ways we can all get involved such as: babysitting, preparing a meal, providing a tangible good, supporting DHS staff, or becoming a foster parent. Come learn more about this new initiative.
