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:

Ensure their children and youth staff and volunteers are trauma aware.
Support a ministry for kinship and foster families.
