Uniting the church to transform the lives of vulnerable children in our city

The Challenge

Hundreds of children in Mecklenburg County are in foster care after experiencing abuse or neglect in their family of origin.

Congregations for Kids provides clear pathways for churches, individuals, and groups to support youth in foster care.

Our Model:


We recruit and train foster parents and help others learn how to support the foster parents in their community.


We recruit and train mentors for older youth in foster care through our Weekend Miracles mentoring program.


We recruit volunteers to encourage social workers, serve at events, and/or mobilize prayer for foster youth.


We mobilize financial partners to fund programming for foster youth and/or meet needs through gift-in-kind donations.

Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to see real, current stories of youth in care and receive updates on how CFK is making a difference.

Your Generosity Matters

Consider partnering with CFK through a one time or recurring financial gift. Your generosity helps us increase our ability to support vulnerable youth in Charlotte.


Collaborative partnership of the For Charlotte Mission Network and Mecklenburg County DSS, uniting churches for the mentorship, foster care and hosting needs of Mecklenburg County.
