Today in the counties that make up WNC
thousands of children are in foster care and in need a loving home.
Due to a shortage of foster parents and beds "in county" children are often sent out of county for care and sibling groups are often separated. These unfortunate circumstances create additional hardships in the lives of the children.
SIBLINGS DESERVE TO STAY TOGETHER
Offer a safe HOME where house parents can care for sibling groups
Provide a family-like environment where children experience the LOVE and HOPE of Christ
Coordinate wrap-around care to ensure HEALING and prepare children for reunification or adoption
AS A FATHER TO THE FATHERLESS AND DEFENDER OF THE WEAK,
GOD CALLS US TO CARE FOR VULNERABLE CHILDREN.
Because God has come to our rescue, we are unwilling to ignore the plight of vulnerable children in our community.
We envision working collectively to promote hope and healing.
H3C's desire is to surround children with love and support. With a shared sense of responsibility, the community, the church and relevant service agencies work together to care for children in their undeserved circumstances.
We are not all called to do the same thing, but we are all capable of doing something! Through wrap-around care, everyone can make a difference.
Wrap-around care equips and empowers others to join foster and adoptive families in caring for vulnerable children.
H3C coordinates care by providing housing for fostering sibling groups, supporting and equipping house parents, and pairing each home with Care Communities.
This coordinated care promotes hope and healing and sustains the calling of foster and adoptive parents.

"UNDER 1 SKY"
CAMP FOR KIDS
The “Under 1 Sky” camp program is focused on providing year round camp and mentorship opportunities for any child who has experienced or is currently in substitute care. For many children who experience an out of home placement, traditional camp can be either overwhelming or not possible due to placement moves and missing enrollment deadlines. Our Under 1 Sky program cultivates and supports enduring connections for youth through camps and self-discovery programming. Our vision is that ALL youth are seen, heard, and valued in North Carolina.
November 17-19 (Overnight Camp)
December 9 (Day Camp)
"I learned that the kindest people are at Under One Sky. Everyone is so welcoming. I LOVE my Under One Sky Family!"
