Ways to Serve
Fostering the Family exists to work with the church and volunteers to create one of 3 P’s of Possibility:
Become a PROACTIVE Community
Will you pray? Will you give?
Fostering the Family believes prayer is powerful! If you have a few minutes a day to spend in prayer for vulnerable children, foster and adoptive families, child welfare employees, volunteers, churches, healthcare workers, and the sick and struggling in our community, it makes a BIG difference.
Every time Fostering the Family partners with a church to raise up a foster family with a Care Community, more safe, loving, and long-term homes become available for children in need.
When you give, your donation provides the resources we need to continue helping vulnerable children in our communities.
Become a PROGRESSIVE Community
Do you have a heart to provide help through our Fostering the Family Technology Portal?
Joining our Portal will revolutionize your involvement in the child welfare system by empowering you to impact your community!
Here’s how it works:
As a volunteer, you become part of our network organized by zip code throughout the state. Fostering the Family enters needs into the Portal as we learn of them so volunteers can view and search for opportunities they have the skills, interest, and availability to meet. By joining our database, you help your church or organization become a catalyst for communicating and collaborating on meeting needs across your community! After meeting a need, you have the opportunity to give a testimonial about your experience as an encouragement to others. We are better together!
