- How are you supported? The majority of our support comes from a service contract with the State of Maryland. This contract is the underpinning of our CHOSEN Treatment Foster Care program. Direct gifts from the Cooperative Program account for about 1% of our annual operating budget. Gifts from churches and individuals account for about 10%.
- How many children and families do you serve? In CHOSEN, our Treatment Foster Care program, we served 64 kids in 2006. The Good Samaritan Network reaches close to 1,300 families and kids annually through a variety of programs. Click here to learn more about GSN.
- How are kids and families admitted into your care? There are two answers to that question. For CHOSEN's Treatment Foster Care services, children are referred by a county-level Department of Social Services. GSN's Information and Referral Hotline is open to any caller. GSN's Case Management services are typically entered into when a family is referred to Baptist Family by their church.
- How can I get involved? Baptist Family needs parents to shelter and love foster kids, volunteers to help families through GSN, and donors to support our work. To get involved, click any of the links on the navigation menu to the right.
