1.27-Network-Logo-FinalThe 1.27 Network is a group of organizations committed to serving children and families involved in the foster care system. Each organization in the network is uniquely structured and engaged to meet ministry opportunities surrounding foster care in their home state.

  • Recruit foster/adoptive families through local churches
  • Promote support for foster and adoptive families through local churches
  • Resource churches, families and individuals to respond to James 1:27
  • Believe in The Apostle’s Creed as a common statement of faith

  • Pray for one another
  • Share resources, ideas and learning
