In 2004, Bishop Aaron Blake, Sr. initiated the first “Stand Sunday” in the United States, calling the families at his home church in Brownwood, Texas to stand-up to care for children and families impacted by the child welfare system.
Today, churches across the nation join forces on Stand Sunday to declare war on inaction when it comes to children and families facing abuse, abandonment, and neglect.
There are approximately 424,000 foster youth nationwide.
The average age for foster youth is 6 1/2.
20,000 youth age out of the foster care system each year.
You may not be able to change the world, but you can change the life of one.
Will you Stand for the neglected, abused, and abandoned children in your community?
