What Does It Take For Your Faith Community To Become Foster Friendly?

Did you know that 40 percent of foster parents stop fostering within the first year? And one of the most often-cited reasons is lack of community support.
Your faith community can play a valuable role in changing the experience and outcomes for kids and families in foster and kinship care.

Here Are 3 Best Practices Of A Foster Friendly Faith Community.

You only need to choose two to join our App, but we encourage you to embrace all three.


Trauma Aware

Ensure volunteers in child and youth ministry are trauma aware by offering trauma awareness training to understand the impact of trauma on kids’ behavior.


Teach On Fostering

Teach in a main gathering on God’s heart for vulnerable children and families, and give people an opportunity to respond.


Support Families

Offer a support ministry for kinship and foster families. Popular examples include kids’ nights out, fostering support groups and WRAP teams.
