IT TAKES A VILLAGE...
Meeting the basic needs of children is only part of the weight that foster parents carry. One of the most important, but often overlooked, goals of parenting children coming from hard places is for them to feel a sense of connection. Helping these children to feel seen, heard, and bonded is an essential part of caring for them. It can also be one of the most challenging parts.
Our goal is to create opportunities for foster families to connect with each other, both the children and the parents, as well as create opportunities for the community to connect with these children and families. Foster families are the greatest recruiters of other foster families and by bridging the gap between the two, we hope to see more community awareness and involvement in all aspects of the foster system.
We hope to stay in touch with you via social media and our newsletter with updates about ways for you to connect with community resources and other families like yours! With connection comes belonging and a greater likelihood for healing and thriving…we look forward to fostering that connection with you.
