Important leadership changes for FCI

Friends,

For those of you who know me well and have been instrumental in helping us get Foster Care Initiatives off the ground then you know there have been two things driving us in our work:

 1) the incredible needs of vulnerable and hurting children, youth, and families in our city. 

 2) the Holy Spirit moving on local churches, leaders, and pastors all across our city to care for the orphan through movements like AZ127, Helping AZ Families, the Hope Initiative, Refugio Phoenix, and the Edge. 

FCI Update

“But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds.” Psalms 73:28

Our staff and volunteers often rub shoulders with some of the ugliest things that are happening in our city: kids being abused, mothers broken from violent acts committed against them, witnessing the damaging effects drugs and alcohol have on families.
