In Tampa Bay alone, an average of six to eight children
Within the Tampa Bay area, the ratio of churches to children placed in foster care shows a 7-to-1 ratio. Of these churches in Tampa Bay, there is an average of 100+ people in each congregation.
If only one family from each church opened up their home to one child in crisis, the need for foster care would be completely eradicated.
By placing a child in a loving, Christ-centered environment, the Church can be the catalyst to show the love of Jesus to these children who may have not even experienced true love in their lives. A Door of Hope is raising up families like this who can bring real hope to every child in crisis.
