Together we can ensure that there are more than enough loving families to meet the need in Central Florida

Join our network

Central Florida CAFO is a regional alliance of churches working together to care for orphans and vulnerable children in our community.

We believe that we can restore hope and healing for every child in Foster Care if families in our churches become the loving and safe environments where these children can experience the good news of the Gospel.

We believe that by connecting area pastors, lay leaders, and volunteers to one another and to the need in our community, we can create a network of care that shares best practices with one another and collaborates on effective and creative ways to ensure there are more than enough loving families to care for every vulnerable child in our community.
