There are over 150 foster children in Benton County. There are 5 C.A.L.L. homes in Siloam Springs, 35 in Benton County. Foster parents are not paid a salary - they are paid a "Board Payment" that just barely covers the needs of their foster child. This is an opportunity for Christians to join and/or support other Christians in this ministry. During this season of thankfulness for home and family, we are inviting churches & youth ministries to minister to foster homes in the area via a Food Drive, to thank God for His blessings & to share those blessings with others. If you would like more information about the C.A.L.L. check out http://www.thecallinarkansas.org/about-the-call-in-benton-county.htmlIf you would like join us in our Food Drive, let me know!
