Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

One Church One Child (OCOC) is a partnership between the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, communities of faith, and other invested partners working together to improve outcomes for children in Idaho. OCOC of Idaho’s focus is on foster children, especially those who are hardest to place into forever homes which include older youth, sibling groups, and children with special needs. In addition to helping with foster and adoptive parent recruitment efforts within Idaho’s faith-based communities, OCOC strives to build a natural support system within the community for foster, adoptive and biological children and their families.
One Church One Child in Idaho seeks to:
Recruit individuals and families within communities of faith to become licensed foster parents and/or adoptive parents;
Support adoptive and foster families through training, communication, access to supports and resources; and
Mobilize congregations to provide for the identified needs of foster children and their birth families who may benefit from supports to increase positive outcomes for their children.
