The Epidemic of Childhood Trauma in the U.S. Foster Care System and How Christians Can Help
- By Paul Martin - Focus on the Family
America’s foster care system is experiencing an ‘epidemic within the pandemic.’ Christians can help turn the tide.
Last August, a staff member sent a message asking me to pray for a seven-year-old child in foster care. The child, named Anna, had just been admitted to a mental health hospital for trying to harm herself.
Anna lived in a housing project in South Chicago. She was recently removed from her biological mother due to neglect and placed with a foster mother. With school closings and an overburdened family court system, the young girl now lived with her new foster family seven-days-a-week, 24-hours-a-day. Her school, which had been a refuge for Anna (and hundreds of thousands of other kids in foster care like her), had been closed for months.

New Pro-life Organization is Taking Recourse - and Action on Aborted Fetal Vaccines
- By Christian Newswire
TREMPEALEAU, Wis. -- A new prolife organization is stepping forward to combat the ever-growing use of aborted fetal material in research, development, testing and production of vaccines, medicines and other consumer products.
The organization, appropriately named "Taking Recourse," was founded by long-time prolife leader Yvonne Bontkowski in faithful response to the 2005 Pontifical Academy for Life document which stated:
"Therefore, doctors and fathers of families have a duty to take recourse to alternative vaccines (if they exist), putting pressure on the political authorities and health systems so that other vaccines without moral problems become available. They should take recourse, if necessary, to the use of conscientious objection with regard to the use of vaccines produced by means of cell lines of aborted human fetal origin.

Greenville on Track to Achieve Functional Zero Milestone for Ending Veteran Homelessness
- By United Housing Connections
United Housing Connections (UHC), teamed up with Greenville, SC Veteran service providers in September 2018 and set a goal to reach Functional Zero for Veteran Homelessness and redefined and implemented system changes for serving Veterans experiencing homelessness. Functional Zero Designation for Ending Veteran Homelessness is a community milestone that indicates that fewer Veterans are experiencing homelessness than are routinely exiting homelessness at any given time. According to the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness ((USICH) 82 communities and 3 states have ended Veteran homelessness. Functional Zero is a well-coordinated and efficient community change system that assures homelessness is rare, brief and non-recurring and no Veteran is forced to live on the street. This means that every Veteran has access to the supports they need and want to avoid staying on the street and move quickly to permanent housing.
