One Church One Child of Florida is reaching out to families and individuals in communities across the state in efforts to help find permanent homes for children.
Children featured in this monthly spotlight are waiting for a permanent home and/or mentor.
Daily, over 700 children are in need of a family to call their own; many of them are minorities.
The Rev. Beverly Hills Lane, state president for One Church One Child of Florida and vice president for National One Church One Child, is challenging fellow pastors to get involved and encouraging families to open their hearts and homes to children in foster care.
Churches are asked to partner with One Church One Child in sharing information with congregations and extending Watch-Care Ministries to children.
Marquele is a charismatic young man with a big heart. He loves science and wants to become a chemical engineer when he grows up. He has an insatiable curiosity, and once he latches on to an idea or interest, he’s determined to follow it through.
Marquele is a good and loyal friend, and a diehard Seahawks fan!
Although he has been through a lot in his young life, Marquele still has the simple desire of any kid – to be special to someone. He will thrive in a home with one or two loving, understanding parents, and will do best as the youngest or only child.
