The ideal first step is to support a Foster Family before making a deeper commitment. Are you someone who has the capacity to do the following?

  • Mentor and encourage children who are in foster care.

  • Provide childcare, transportation, meals, and other forms of day/evening support for a Foster Family two to three times each month.

  • Pursue the needed approvals (background check, fingerprinting, driver’s license, automobile insurance, etc.).

  • Attend a two-hour training session prior to your first assignment to a Care Community.
