CarePortal is an online platform that brings the needs of hurting children and families in the community to our attention, giving us a real-time opportunity to respond and be the hands and feet of Jesus.
How you can help
CarePortal is a tool for helping the kids in foster care and the families in need around our church (and, as it turns out, the elderly in our church as well.) The needs are all completely vetted by Kids Central, DCF and FBCU staff before being entered into the system.
Each, signed up, responder can respond to fulfill all or part of a need, or just pray for the family in need. At this time, we are asking our FBCU members to sign up so as a church family we can all be informed of the needs in our community, pray for those in need and come up with ideas individually and as a church to fulfill those needs. There is no time commitment necessary, it is a communication tool to send out vetted requests for kiddos and families in need.
Here is a link to the CarePortal "About" page which gives a great overview of what the tool does https://www.careportal.org/about-us/. (if you are more curious, please peruse the rest of their website. There is a page where you can see actual open requests, and several videos and a great FAQ's page.)
