Non-profit organization hopes to build homes for foster children in McLennan County
WOODWAY, Texas (KWTX) – The national nonprofit, Isaiah 117, hosted a community-wide launch event on Sunday to share its fundraising plans to build homes for family children home in McLennan County.
The organization, from 2017, helps to house and feed children immediately after their placement in the foster care system, before they are placed with a new family.
Expansion Coordinator Sarah Miller says while the organization knows these projects will take time, she is confident in her chances of giving back to foster children in McLennan County.
“We really believe this is what God called us to do,” she said.
“We need to champion the cause of orphans and seek out the needs of orphans here in town. We know there is a huge need for this and we know that children need this support, this love. No child should have to go through life without knowing they are loved and cared for. “
No official budget has been presented and organizers estimate that building a house could take up to two years.
Since its inception, the organization has built homes across the country, including states like Tennessee, Indiana, California, and now Texas.
