Foster Village bridges the gap.

Foster parents often feel tired and alone. Most families foster for less than a year, citing burnout and lack of support as the reason they stop. At the same time, 85% of people who are not foster parents say they care about vulnerable children and want to help.

Foster Village bridges this gap between foster families and caregivers and those who want to help, meeting practical needs and providing holistic support beyond the system.

Meeting needs. Bringing dignity to the system.

Together, we can make sure foster families and children have their basic needs met, connect foster families to resources and to each other and advocate for change in the system, creating a better future for our community, our children and the caregivers who raise them.

Foster Village is here for families every step of the way. Through our resource centers, therapeutic resources and CPS supervised shelter for children awaiting suitable homes, we help equip caregivers with necessities and resources so they can focus on helping the children in their care thrive.

Our goal is to create opportunities for foster families – both the children and the parents – to connect with each other. By connecting foster families with other foster families, biological families and trusted resources, families are strengthened and empowered to continue fostering.

We bring dignity to the children and families we serve, understanding the root causes of why a child ends up in the foster care system, facilitating relationships between foster families and biological families and replicating communities of support around the nation.

We are here to care for the caregivers and empower children and families to overcome adversity. If you are a foster parent or caregiver in need of resources, please visit our For Caregivers section to find out how we can serve you.

Be the Village

Our children need more than a system; they need a village. In fact, 90% of the families we serve cite the support they receive from Foster Village as one of the primary reasons they are able to keep fostering.

You can help be the village of love and support for a child in foster care, whether you volunteer, give or start your own location. Get involved today!
