Project 1.27

God loves children. But for 80 years too many children and youth have been languishing in the U.S. foster care system. That’s too long. Over 120,000 of them are legally free for adoption and waiting for their forever homes and every year their numbers keep growing. It’s costing taxpayers $283 million a day! In 2005 there were 875 legally free children in Colorado. But something amazing started happening here: The Christian church started coming together, getting up out of their pews and helping. Now, great families from all over the state are stepping forward to adopt these children and youth in growing numbers. So much so, that Colorado now has fewer children and youth waiting in foster care than it did in 2005! Imagine a day when there are no more children or youth in Colorado waiting to be adopted. A day when there is a family waiting for every child or youth in need, and every child or youth has a family home. We believe that day is coming by 2014.

Project 1.27 is “a Ministry from the Churches of Colorado to the Orphans of Colorado”. In fulfillment of a Godly calling, we serve children by producing successful adoptions between families in church communities and legally free children in the Colorado foster care system. We recruit, train, and support adoptive parents, support teams, churches, counties, and other partners to provide hope for all children and benefit our state and society.  Visit our website for more information: http://project127.com/
