DC127 exists to reverse the foster-care wait list in DC. What if the Church did this? We believe nobody can do everything, but everybody can do something. DC127 helps prospective foster parents navigate the process, while partnering with Safe Families For Children to recruit volunteers to support families in crisis. Volunteer host families provide a temporary safe haven for children, giving their parents a chance to build stability when they have nowhere else to turn.
Ways to Get Involved
The opportunities to serve are not limited to inviting children into your home. You can help NCC families who serve in this way by providing respite care or babysitting, cooking meals for families with recently placed kids, mentoring or providing needed resources.
