The need for foster and adoptive parents is great in Arkansas. You don’t have to be perfect, you just have to be willing and available. There is training involved and some requirements to meet.

The good news is that at The CALL, we’ve walked hundreds of parents through this process over the past 10 years. We will be there every step of the way for you too, if you choose to pursue becoming a foster or adoptive parent.

The first step is to come to an Info Meeting in your county to learn more and maybe get started.


The CALL is about mobilizing and equipping the local church to be actively involved in helping solve the foster care crisis in their community. Any church, no matter how large or small, can now be involved in caring for children in foster care in the community.

Families that foster or adopt need encouragement and support. What better place to get that than from their local church?

For a church wanting to make a difference for children in foster care, The CALL provides a proven path to get involved. Here are just a few ideas:

  • Promote The CALL’s Info Meetings to your congregation
  • Host an Informational Meeting
  • Host a foster/adoptive parent training
  • Host foster/adoptive parent support meetings
  • Provide support to foster/adoptive families in the congregation

Not everyone is called to foster or adopt, but everyone can help in some way. The CALL relies on a large number of volunteers.

If you are willing and have a little time to invest, we have a spot for you.

To find out what the volunteer opportunities are in your county, start by going to the county webpage.

Another excellent way to get involved is to come to an Info Meeting. You’ll meet your county team in person and can find out just where you will fit into the mission of The CALL.
