This article is about a group in Georgia that is doing work through churches for children and families similar to AGAPE of NC. But it is not just a problem in Georgia or North Carolina.
Nationwide, the number of children in foster care increased 8 percent from 397,000 in 2012 to 428,000 in 2015, according to data from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Why churches? AGAPE of NC is prayerfully seeking safe homes and forever families where children will experience the hope, healing and the unconditional love of Jesus Christ.
