How would you like to learn more about becoming a Foster parent? How about adoption or being that great example and being there for a child as their mentor? Then you do not want to miss this event this Friday, January 19. 

For the Sake of One will be having its very first recruitment event for community members. This event is designed to help you find your perfect fit and help and make a difference in the lives of others.


You'll learn all about fostering, adoption, mentoring, and other opportunities to help vulnerable kids and families in our area. You'll also have the chance to meet with the different organizations and agencies that can help you get started.

This event will be Friday January 20 from 6 PM to 8 PM at Beech Street First Baptist Church's Family Activity Center at 601 Beech Street in Texarkana. There will be a dinner provided by Chick-fil-A, where you will hear stories from a panel of people who are in the foster and adoptive community.

The 'Be Bold' event will share information you need to know but they will not pressure you to sign up for anything.

There is a shortage of foster homes available in our area. According to the For the Sake of One press release,

There are currently 47 children in foster care in Bowie County with only 7 open foster homes, 17 children in foster care in Cass County with only 4 open foster homes, 137 children in foster care in Miller County with only 30 open foster homes, and 36 children in foster care in Little River County with only 11 open foster homes. There is a desperate need for more community members to hear this information and respond to help struggling families and children, whether that is through fostering or volunteering to support these families.
