What is We Are 1 Million?
We Are 1 Million is a movement to raise up 1 Million Christians to serve U.S. foster children.
Why 1 Million? Each year, more than 600,000 children spend time in foster care. And caring for children is difficult. No one should do it alone.
With 100 Million Christians in America. There are 100 Christians for every foster child in the U.S. We just need 1 out of every 100 to say yes to our communities’ foster children. That’s right, 1 out of 100. We need 1 Million caring Christians to step up and live out the Great Commission right here in our own neighborhoods.
We need families to foster. Volunteers to support those who do. And donors to help provide a Christian family for hurting children. Together, we can help abused, neglected and abandoned children and their families by sharing the Gospel of Christ and the love of Jesus.
