Grant Application

Adoption Grants

God’s design for children is to grow up in permanent, loving families. With 147 million orphans worldwide and 155,000 children available for adoption in the US foster care system, the need is great! Adoption is a beautiful and imperative response to this need. At Called to Care, we remain committed to helping reduce the greatest barrier to adoption, necessary finances, through our adoption grants. Because additional fears and concerns may linger, we also help families explore their calling to adopt through education and grants.

To apply for a Called to Care Grant, you must live in a Georgia county with a Called to Care chapter or a county that is directly adjacent to a C2C chapter. Chapters: Atkinson, Ben Hill/Irwin, Berrien, Brooks, Charlton/Brantley, Clinch, Coffee, Cook, Dougherty/Lee, Lanier, Lowndes/Echols, Pierce/Bacon, Sumter, Tift/Turner, Ware, and Worth.

If your family is working with an agency, then the agency must have 501(c)3 non-profit status and be Hague accredited. Also, your family must have a completed and approved home study. If your family is working with a lawyer, then the lawyer must be in good standings with the Georgia State Bar and have no disciplinary complaints or actions within the past 5 years.

  • Signed Called to Care statement of faith
  • Signed disclaimer and consent form
  • Copy of home study
  • Pastoral reference
  • Verification from the agency or lawyer regarding fees (amounts paid and owed)
  • Completed essay, which should cover the following:
    • Family description and history
    • Description of salvation experience
    • Explanation of how God has led your family to adopt
    • Explanation of why you believe you need financial assistance

Is your family considering adoption? The road to adopting can seem daunting at times. Yet, each step ensures that children from backgrounds of loss or trauma are placed in homes with well-informed, caring parents who have committed to providing a nurturing environment unique to the concerns of adopting. While Called to Care is NOT an adoption agency, here is a list of our recommended agencies:

Domestic Adoption, Older Child or Sibling Group

Domestic Newborn Adoption

International Adoption

Mission Grants

Called to Care knows that not everyone is called to foster or adopt, but we are all called to do something. With more than 147 million orphans worldwide, living in brokenness and distress, the Bible orders us to go to them and care for them. In John 14:18, God says, “I see you, and I am coming for you.” If God has called you to the mission field of caring for orphans, Called to Care wants to help. Our ongoing goal is to increase awareness of mission opportunities through our partnering agencies and local churches. All mission trips will travel abroad and minister to hurting children in every effort to multiply disciples.  

To apply for a Called to Care Grant, you must live in a Georgia county with a Called to Care chapter or a county that is directly adjacent to a Called to Care chapter.  Chapters: Atkinson, Ben Hill/ Irwin, Berrien, Charlton/Brantley, Coffee, Cook/Brooks, Dougherty/Lee, Lanier/Clinch, Lowndes/Echols, Pierce/Bacon, Sumter, Tift/Turner, Ware, and Worth.  The mission opportunity must be specifically focused on Called to Care’s mission to minister to vulnerable children.

  • Signed Called to Care statement of faith
