Child In Need... Child Ignored

Dr. John DeGarmo is our lead Foster Care speaker.

Dr. John DeGarmo (pictured left) is a leading international foster care expert and consultant. He is the director of The Foster Care Institute, and acts as a consultant to foster care agencies and legal agencies across the USA. His talk is about the foster care crisis in America, and how more children are being placed into foster care, yet there are not enough homes. He brings his expertise and passion for equipping Foster Care parents to Orphaned Heart Intl.


Both Dr. DeGarmo and Devin Schubert make a dynamic duo for bringing Orphaned Heart healing to hurting children in Foster Care programs across the USA.  Devin grew up a Foster child and now is a Foster parent.


The need is to train those wanting to be Foster Care parents and what to expect. Plus, offer ongoing support once they've taken children into their homes. The sad fact is one out of three couples give up within 18 months due to lack of emotional and spiritual support. Orphaned Heart Intl assists local churches in setting up "LIFE Groups" to help significantly reduce this statistic. Every time a child is forced to change homes, the heartbreaking trauma of abandonment and rejection occurs again in the child. This causes more damage to their already fragile emotional and mental health condition
