Churches have the opportunity to become a first responder during today’s pandemic

 

Due to COVID-19, the US support system for vulnerable children will likely be overwhelmed in the coming weeks and months.

 

Local churches have the opportunity to be first responders in this crisis. CarePortal is a tool we offer churches in Georgia so they can meet the physical needs of at-risk kids and their families. Learn more about CarePortal and ways you can help during the Coronavirus crisis.

By addressing the needs of vulnerable children from both sides – through early intervention and by resourcing quality foster homes – we pray for families in crisis to be strengthened through churches who are engaged with their needs.

CarePortal is a technological tool utilized in 18 states that has already served 36,150 children; Promise686 is the implementing partner in Georgia. (Currently launched in Carroll, Chattooga, Colquitt, Dougherty, Glynn, Gwinnett, Laurens, Toombs, and Walker Counties.) Via a simple email request, CarePortal provides entry-level opportunities to connect a network of caring people in churches to vetted physical needs of families in their community. This network provides preventative support for struggling families before foster care is a necessity. When the intervention of foster care is a necessity, CarePortal also supports the foster families who are welcoming these children.

How Does CarePortal Work?

Promise686 utilizes CarePortal to connect churches to practical needs of children and families in their surrounding community.
