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.
