How the Church is Impacting the Foster Care Crisis
Story by UBA Team Writer, Meredith Cook
For many months now the Texas Foster Care System has been under review and the target of much criticism. Children at Risk Growing Up in Houston puts the number of children placed in Protective Custody by Harris County CPS* at over 4,000. News articles speak of the "crisis in foster care." Legislators have been struggling to address a "broken" system. It's clear that the need is great. Churches and faith-based organizations are urged to become a part of the solution and have an important role to play. The Scoggins and the Hays are two UBA families, among many others, who have chosen to become a part of the solution. Meredith Cook, UBA Team Writer, shares their story.
