The CALL Accredited by National Financial Accountability Organization

LITTLE ROCK, AR – The ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) announced today the accreditation of The CALL in Arkansas, headquartered in Little Rock, AR.

ECFA accreditation is based on the ECFA Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship™, including financial accountability, transparency, sound board governance and ethical fundraising.

The CALL joins a growing number of Christ-centered churches and ministries across America, supported by over 27 million donors that have earned the right to display the ECFA seal.  When an organization is accredited by ECFA, it demonstrates its willingness to follow the model of biblical accountability.

“We are pleased to accredit a ministry committed to educating, equipping and encouraging the Christian community to provide a hope and a future for the children in Arkansas foster care,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.

Founded in 2007, The CALL (www.thecallinarkansas.org) mobilizes Christians from multiple denominations and churches in local communities across Arkansas to meet the needs of local children in foster care.  The organization recruits and trains Christian foster and adoptive families, and engages support for those families through local churches. The CALL works in a unique and unprecedented partnership with the Division of Children and Families, the Arkansas child welfare agency.
