“God places the lonely in families.”
Psalm 68:6
While only 1% of the US population has spent time in Foster Care,
…50% of the homeless have spent time in Foster Care
…70% of girls rescued from sex trafficking spent time in Foster Care
…65% of those incarcerated spent time in Foster Care
Yes, these statistics are alarming.  But if our church can provide loving, wrap-around support for foster families who are caring for these vulnerable children – those alarming statistics can be reversed!

God commands us to care for the orphan (James 1:27),
to provide for the needy (Isaiah 58:7), and
to sacrifice in order to share with others (Hebrews 13:16).
Did you know?
…50% of Foster Families give up on their dream of caring for these hurting children after only one-year.
…90% of Foster Families who are supported by a church FAM Care Community foster beyond two-years!
… El Paso is experiencing a critical shortage of foster homes. So much so that in some churches children are sleeping in adapted Sunday School classrooms!
CBC’s vision and focus for this ministry is to:
* To support CBC foster families so that they may continue to serve these hurting children.
* To support other Christian foster families in West El Paso so that the body of Christ can make a difference for these kids from trauma.
* To create the eternal impact of leading hurting people to the hope of Jesus.
