Service locations include in Mt Isa, Townsville, Bowen, Mackay, Bundaberg, Maryborough Fraser Coast, Caboolture, Brisbane, Ipswich, Logan and the Gold Coast. Churches of Christ Care’s child, youth and family services have been through rigorous processes in foster care and residential care, to be licensed by the Queensland Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services and to comply with standards set down by the Child Protection Act 1999. This includes the requirement for anyone who interacts with children to have a Blue Card issued through the Queensland Government Public Safety Business Agency. Churches of Christ Care works closely with the Department to recruit, screen and train foster carers. Carers are continually monitored and must be re-approved by the Department every three years.
