The Summit will rally West Virginia church leaders to care for foster, adoptive, and kinship children and families.
West Virginia’s children and families are suffering.
- West Virginia has the highest per capita rate of children in foster care in the nation.
- Children in foster care have PTSD at rates higher than combat veterans.
- Former foster youth experience homelessness and incarceration at high levels.
Children in foster or kinship care are not “someone else’s problem” – they are God’s children.
If you are a pastor or leader in a West Virginia church, Chestnut Mountain Village invites you to save the date of Wednesday, May 18, 2022. On that day, church leaders from across the Mountain State, along with national and state child welfare experts, will gather in Morgantown and begin to transform how the West Virginia Church cares for God’s most vulnerable children and families.
Registration and additional information from Chestnut Mountain Village coming soon.
