Mission & Ministry: Circle of Care
Circle of Care makes it their mission to provide Christian help, healing and hope to children and families in crisis to ensure a safe, healthy and spiritual future.
Three programs help them achieve this mission: Foster Care Services, Preparation for Adult Living (PAL), and Pearl’s Hope.
Foster Care Services
There are nearly 8,000 children in Oklahoma state custody, and on any given day, approximately 150 are in need of a foster home. Circle of Care works to address this need by recruiting, training, certifying, and providing ongoing support for new foster parents.
In addition to supporting families, Circle of Care is building eight foster homes across the state so that siblings can live together.
Preparation for Adult Living (PAL)
The PAL Program is for older students who are aging out of foster care or referred from behavior modification facility, state agency, or United Methodist Church. Students in the PAL program often lack the family support they need to finish school. PAL helps these students complete their education, learn financial literacy and prepare for independent living.
Pearl’s Hope provides transitional housing and other support services for single mothers and their children. This ministry helps fill a gap left by local shelters who cannot accept large families or boys over the age of 13. Pearl’s Hope keeps families together.
Not everybody can foster, but everybody can do something. Learn how you can get involved at www.circleofcare.org.
