Fostering Community provides ongoing support to children in foster care and their families and also works to prevent child abuse and neglect.

WRAP-AROUND SUPPORT for foster families
The first lady of our state has a new initiative called “1 church, 1 family” The idea came from the realization that there are about 4,000 children in foster care in Louisiana and there are about 4,000 churches in our state. If there was 1 family from each church who became certified, and if the entire church wrapped around that foster family, it would change the future of those children. Consider household chores, yard work, grocery shopping, tutoring, delivering meals, babysitting, and prayer. Put your professional skills to use in showing love to adoptive and foster families and to foster youth—from haircuts to orthodontics to car repair. or Maybe you have a skill that you can teach a youth in foster care.
