Supporting Foster Families Isn’t Just A Heart Issue–It’s A Smart Issue

You likely get requests every day to sponsor this or promote that. It’s hard enough to remain profitable these days, so how do you discern what to say yes to?

It really comes down to understanding your why. Here are three reasons that a commitment to support foster care makes good business sense.

  1. Non Controversial Social Responsibility – Caring well for kids in foster care is one issue everyone can get behind that garners broad-based support.
  1. Generational Impact – Investing in foster families has the power to create generational change. Businesses that support foster care are helping create sustainable change in foster care.
  1. Significant Community and Economic Impact – When kids in foster care age out (at age 18) without a stable, loving family they are at greatly increased risk for 10 social wounds that directly impact our communities and they’ll require an average of $300,000 in social services over their lifetimes.
Foster care often leads to other long-term social wounds
