Child SHARE Party

The Child SHARE party will be in the Activity Center from 12:00-2:00 pm. 


Child SHARE (Shelter Homes: A Rescue Effort) is a program that started in California in 1985 to provide foster families with clothing, equipment and support through area churches.  The Oklahoma United Methodist Circle of Care, which has helped children and youth through residential and foster care services since 1917, adopted the Child SHARE program in 1999 and, along with several other programs, continues to provide this support still today. 

There are more than 10,000 children in Oklahoma’s foster care system.  On any given day there are 150 children in need of a foster home, which has yet to be found.  When a foster home is not available, these children stay in county shelters.  However, these shelters are being phased out.

Circle of Care works to recruit, train, and provide ongoing support to foster parents through the Child SHARE program.  One aspect of the program is a free Christmas party for the foster families and some foster families who have bridged to adoptive families.
