Is Your Faith Community Foster Friendly?

If you’re already part of a faith community, consider inviting them to become Foster Friendly. Here are some of the important ways faith communities can support foster care:

Teach

Teach about the intersection of foster care and faith to encourage more people to consider fostering, and to honor and encourage those who do.

Trauma Aware

Ensure their children and youth staff and volunteers are trauma aware.

Kinship Ministry

Support a ministry for kinship and foster families.


Our Foster Friendly Faith flyer highlights these best practices and provides resources to help your community take the next steps. Share it with your leadership next weekend.
