CarePortal is a technology platform connecting vulnerable children and families with people who have something to give. Social workers are trained to uncover high-impact needs. CarePortal makes local churches aware, giving their ministries and teams a real-time opportunity to respond.
Every request submitted and approved by a local agency includes a specific goal such as preventing a child from entering foster care, reunifying a biological family, helping to make an adoptive placement, or supporting a youth as they age out of foster care. Responding churches can make direct connections with the families in need with the support and guidance of the caseworker.
These are opportunities, not obligations. In partnership with your local network leaders, your church’s Point Person will have the ability to select preferences and determine how your church’s ministries use the CarePortal platform. Each church can customize who can join their response team and how they engage caseworkers and families in their responses.
