Upcoming Event: The Refresh Conference 2020
March 6 & 7, 2020 / Overlake Christian Church, Redmond, WA
From the conference website: "Refresh is a Christian conference designed for foster and adoptive parents, kinship providers, grandparents, and others who care for orphaned and vulnerable children. We understand firsthand that this journey can be difficult and lonely. The Refresh Conference is a time for you to escape from the distractions and chaos of life and be physically, emotionally, spiritually refreshed, and inspired. Refresh is not a foster/adoptive recruiting conference. It is all about supporting parents like you on your post placement journey."
OAFC featured in the Catholic Diocese of Raleigh
"They didn’t know each other yet, but at almost the exact same time, Kazmer and Arhab reached out to Deacon Mark Westrick, the director of social ministries at St. Michael. Westrick connected the two of them and, after many coffee dates and conversations, OAFC was formed."
Thank You for Your Support of
Children & Youth in Foster Care!

There are over 600 children in Foster Care in Wake County. We appreciate your assistance in helping a child start the school year with the tools to succeed.
