ORPHAN JUSTICE CENTER wrote -
The purpose of A Child's Hope ministry (within the Church of the Resurrection) is to unite the Christian community to “look after orphans… in their distress” (James 1:27), facilitate successful placements where children in foster care can become part of a Christ-centered forever family, and to wrap our arms around the adoptive and foster families to help meet their immediate and long-term spiritual, emotional, and physical needs.
- With the shortage of foster and adoptive homes in Kansas City and Johnson County, Resurrection families are needed to open their hearts and their homes.
- The vision of a Child's Hope ministry is that there will be "No Waiting Child in Kansas Foster Care."
