The CityChurch Network was a critical part of getting The CALL launched in Arkansas. They brought church leaders together from varying denominations and locations to unite in the rallying cry for the Church to provide the needed foster and adoptive families for abused and neglected children.
Since then, The CALL, in partnership with churches and DHS, has spread to 48 counties is Arkansas, with over 11,000 children being fostered or adopted by CALL-recruited families, now making up the majority of traditional foster homes in Arkansas.

Vital Families in Schools Summit Moves Church-School Partnership Plan Forward
All families regardless of their size, structure, economic status, or ethnic background need encouragement and support–now more than ever. This challenge fueled CityChurch Network and The City Center partnering to host the Vital Families in Schools Summit on July 22nd in Little Rock.

While there are a number of contributing factors, an increasing number of research studies are confirming that families have the greatest impact on student outcomes. Healthy families are vital for a flourishing community, and the Church is God’s plan for developing healthy families. This is the Vital Families in Schools Initiative.
