Serve the Community

Stepping up to serve in practical ways impacts the lives of children right now! You may feel moved to help the children directly thru fostering or advocacy. Or you might feel led to serve those who are on the frontlines. You might also feel drawn to support the 10.18 Strategy mission in a big picture way. No matter which one you feel led to do, children's lives will be impacted by you doing your part. 10.18 Strategy is here to help you every step of the way.

678,000 REASONS TO HELP

678,000 children are verified as VICTIMS of abuse & neglect each year by Child Protective Services.  Over 78% of these children STAY in their abusive situations, primarily due to a lack of foster families.

To us, that's simply unacceptable. 

Many of our biggest SOCIETAL PROBLEMS stem from the familial cycle of child maltreatment. This IMPACT on our COMMUNITIES is substantial.

Together, we can protect kids through awareness, action, and advocacy.

The orphans and the oppressed will be terrified no longer, for You will bring them justice, and no one will trouble them. Psalms 10.18
