Ways to Help the I Belong Project

Help Make a Difference in the Lives of Kids in Foster Care in Indiana

The I Belong ProjectTM helps to advocate for kids in foster care who are looking for adoptive homes. We give kids a voice by producing high quality videos and photos of them to help them find adoptive families. Additionally, we provide fun, encouraging activities so that foster youth can enjoy a day focused on them and their needs. We rely on donations to help us provide a memorable experience to the kids we serve. Keep scrolling to see hands-on ways to help make it a great day for the kids!

Partner with us:

1. Purchase items from our Amazon Wishlist to support the needs of the kids and volunteers on the day of the video shoot!

These supplies help us provide a fun day for kids who need It most.

These items will be sent directly to our I Belong Project Manager.

2. Write thank you notes to child welfare professionals and/or donate gift cards

Did you know that child welfare worker well being is directly related to outcomes for kids in foster care? The more caseworkers a child has due to turnover results in a lower chance of permanency for the kids. We want to show some love to child welfare professionals In Indiana and you can help by writing thank you notes and providing gift cards.
