We've all heard the phrase “It takes a village to raise a child.” That village of support is even more critical when the child has experienced neglect and trauma and is placed into foster care. Fostering Community provides ongoing support to children in foster care and their families and also works to prevent child abuse and neglect. If you'd like to partner with us to help provide support, here are some ways you can help:

Everyone's "YES" looks different. We are not all called to do the same thing, but we can all do something to help the foster care system. Fostering Community was created to be the bridge between the need of the foster care system and those in the community who want to help. There are endless opportunities to share your time and skills with the foster care community. If you want to get connected, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
