Mission Statement

BCFS is an agency dedicated to being the presense of Jesus Christ in the world through the development and support of programs that meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of humanity.

Description

BCFS is a health and human service organization with locations and programs throughout the world.

Stateside
BCFS is a national leader in medical special need sheltering and provides critical emergency support services to state and local governments during disasters. The organization also provides residential services and emergency shelters for abused or neglected children, residential services for emotionally disturbed children, assisted living services and vocational training for special needs adults, mental health services for children and families, foster care and adoption services, pre-natal and post-partum health services, and international humanitarian aid for children living in impoverished conditions in developing countries.

Around the World
BCFS' overseas division, Children's Emergency Relief International (CERI), operates programs in Eastern Europe, Latin America, Southeast Asia and Africa that help children and families in crisis.

In Eastern Europe, CERI teaches youth aging out of orphanages how to make it on their own and avoid becoming victims of human trafficking. In Latin America, CERI provides community development, medical attention and spiritual guidance to struggling regions.
In Southeast Asia, CERI established the first - and to date, only - foster care system to provide loving homes for children who have been orphaned by a raging civil war, family tragedy and the 2004 tsunami. In Africa, CERI cares for children who have been orphaned by the AIDS epidemic.
