In the fall of 2019, leaders of Christian organizations gathered in New York during the United Nations General Assembly to discuss a collaborative effort to encourage the global church's support for placing vulnerable children in safe, loving families. Last week, the group met again to sign a Global Pledge to support all children thriving in safe and loving families. Melody Curtiss and Laura Horvath represented HCW to sign the pledge. The pledge will soon become available for all supporters to sign at globalchurch.org.
The Pledge: We believe God designed families as the best environment for children and young people to receive the love, belonging, and protection they need in order to flourish. Therefore, on behalf of vulnerable children around the world, we commit to support efforts which strengthen families, invest in family-based solutions, and combat the root causes of their vulnerability.
