The Bair Foundation of Tyler, Texas partners with The East Texas Orphan Care Network for God’s Heart for Orphans Conference on February 1st.
Tyler, TX – The Bair Foundation partners with The East Texas Orphan Care Network for God’s Heart for Orphans Conference on February 1st. The Bair Foundation is focused on finding “forever” homes for the 6,500 children and teens in foster care in Texas whose biological parental rights have been terminated.
The purpose of the East Texas Family Conference is to inspire, encourage and motivate individuals and churches to take up the cause of the fatherless. All are invited to come and learn what James 1:27 means: “Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God, the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress …” The Bair Foundation will have a booth at the conference to distribute information and share the ministry of foster care and foster-to-adopt.
“We are really looking forward to showcasing our organization at the God’s Heart for Orphans Conference next month. Foster and Adoptive families are in high demand for the thousands of foster youth in Texas. The ability to give a child a forever home is an immeasurable gift to give, and we make sure those families have the best support system possible,” stated Dorie Alcaro, Marketing Director for The Bair Foundation. Our greatest need is for families willing to adopt older children or sibling groups.
The foundation provides incomparable and specialized training for adults interested in adoption or in becoming a foster parent. Once certified, the adoption and foster care organization provides 24/7 support to these families.
“As foster parents serve the children, The Bair Foundation will serve them through support, encouragement, and mentoring,” continued Alcaro.
Held on Saturday, February 1st, “God’s Heart for the Orphan” Conference will be hosted at the Green Acres CrossWalk Conference Center. Scheduled speakers included Congress woman, Michele Bachmann, Dr. Russell Moore, and President of Religious Liberty and Ethics Commission and TCU’s Dr. Karyn Purvis.
