HOW YOU CAN SERVE FOSTER PARENTS:
PROVIDE A MEAL OR GIFT CARD
Life is hectic and that is very true for the foster family. Providing a meal or a gift card to a restaurant or for groceries encourages them and lets them know someone cares.
HELP WITH LIGHT HOME IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS
Mobilize your family or small group to help with light home improvements such as deck repairs, roof repairs, yard work, painting, installing play sets and more.
HOST A FOSTER PARENT'S NIGHT OUT
Mobilize your church to host a parent's night out event. This gives foster parents a needed break to reconnect with each other and be encouraged to continue serving the children in their care.
BECOME A RESPITE CARE PROVIDER
Foster parents need time to get away for a few days and rest. Respit providers are part time foster families who relieve the foster parents for a few days and provide care for their children while their away.
Foster parents open their hearts and homes to children and teens without a home. Caring for these children and helping them heal from trauma can be overwhelming at times. When we support foster parents, they are encouraged and better equipped to serve the children and teens in their care.
School Supply Recipient:
We were one of the foster families served. 2 sweet foster kids got almost all of the supplies they needed for this school year. This was a HUGE blessing to our family. We have 4 school age children (2 biological and 2 foster) and having the needs met of half of them helped us tremendously with the expense of school supplies. Some people may not think it’s a big deal to purchase and donate some school supplies. For us it was a big deal! Thank you for blessing our family!
