An Arkansas organization, The Call, has stepped in to help couples hoping to foster children. Because the state is overloaded and understaffed, and are many children in need of loving foster homes, they have not been able to process potential foster parents fast enough. With the 10-week training course, oodles of paperwork, and required crisis management that takes place in DHS, some potential foster parents fall through the cracks and never get licensed. The state is now working with faith-based organization The Call as well as other organizations to find a way to streamline the process and thereby help the state’s children.
