CBA Hosts Foster Meeting
Updated: Dec 21, 2022
Every child deserves a safe and loving environment, and that's why the Columbus Baptist Association and the N.C. Baptist Children's Home (NCBCH) are partnering together to host the Potential Foster Parents Information Meeting on Thursday, Jan. 26, at 7 p.m. at the CBA office.
This event is for anyone who is interested in becoming a foster care parent.
Mark Smith, liaison for the NCBCH, will be on hand to share information about requirements for fostering children through the organization.
The ultimate goal of the program is to provide stable homes for kids in need for a brief or extended period of time in hopes of returning them to their biological family.
"This is part of our association-wide initiative to help with foster care in Columbus County," said Rev. Dave Heller in a Facebook post.
The NCBCH also sponsors a Foster-to-Adopt program designed to find permanent homes for children currently in the foster care system when re-unification is not possible. This program is to provide an option for permanency for these children through the adoption process.
The Domestic Infant Adoption and International Adoption programs provide options for women in unexpected pregnancies. The international program focuses on finding homes for children and sibling groups abroad.
