Called 2 Care is focused on creating practical ways that every believer can make a difference for vulnerable children everywhere. The Bible says that we are all called to care for the orphan just as God has cared for us.
We will be serving kids locally through the CarePortal, a unique way to connect needs of local children with our church family who can help meet them. The CarePortal as a whole is a larger national effort, more of which you can learn about below. The Cove hosts our own listing of CarePortal needs, unique to our area and our church.
What Is the CarePortal?
The CarePortal is an open door between DSS and the church—working together to serve our community’s children who are facing difficult circumstances. Local DSS staff work with families to identify current needs. These needs are vetted by child welfare workers, significant to the child's case and sometimes are very simple to meet.
Responders recieve a notice when needs are indentified in their geographic area, and can respond if and when they can help. Responders may be individuals or a Life Group. As a responder you can connect with an individual child welfare case worker, and may have the opportunity to connect with the family in need.
