Local Churches Represented at Community Pastor’s Breakfast

Arkansas River Valley Business Directory

By Sherry Johnston

Many local churches were represented at a Community Pastor’s Breakfast last week where they were updated about the number of children from Scott County who are currently in foster care.  The update and other related information about the status of foster children was provided by Meg Scott from the River Valley chapter of “The Call” and Annette Summers, Executive Director of CASA of the Tri-Peaks.  CASA Supervisor Jessica Bell also joined the presentation. After those in attendance were welcomed and the speakers introduced by CASA board member Sherry Johnston, the breakfast meeting was opened with a prayer by Mayor Dave Millard.

There are approximately 46 children from Scott County who are currently in the care of DCFS who have been placed in foster care.  Those attending were presented with the needs of these children and found there are many levels of support and services that are needed. Everyone can find a way to assist that fits their faith, goals, and availability.  In addition to being a foster parent, you can choose to be an advocate for these children or support the existing foster parents. And, most importantly, you can pray for the children, the parents, foster parents, and all those working for the highest and best good of the children.

If you are interested in finding out how you can assist a child from Scott County, you may contact Meg Scott at 479-651-8816 and Annette Summers at 479-651-8816 for additional information.
