Welcome, Caregiver! We’re so glad you’re here.

Our team knows how important hands-on practical support can be as you navigate all of the ups and downs of caring for children from hard situations. Your role is unique, incredibly important, and sometimes, difficult — and we’re here to help.

Our Caregiver Support Program is designed to meet you right where you are. With several levels of support, a variety of therapeutic resources, and a personalized approach, we hope to wrap around your whole family as you navigate the joys and challenges of the season you’re in right now.

All of these services are free-of-charge for foster, kinship, post-adopt and reunified families in our coverage area. We hope to connect with you soon.

Project SOOTHe

One of the best ways to support the children in your life is to understand and meet their sensory processing needs. And since nearly all children who have experienced trauma have sensory processing differences, Project SOOTHe can help. Learn more about how Project SOOTHe can support you and connect with our Caregiver Support Coordinator, Rachel DiMasi, via the form below. We'll connect with you in the next couple days.

Caregiver Resource Helpline

Sometimes life throws challenges our way that feel too big for us to handle on our own. And for all of the caregivers we serve - foster, kinship, adoptive, and reunifying families - having a village of support can make a big difference.

Our Caregiver Resource Helpline is designed to help when you're facing urgent needs: unstable shelter, food insecurity, transportation challenges, behavioral intervention needs, and more.

Our Foster Village team is here to help in those moments that are overhwhelming and difficult to navigate alone.

When you call or text our helpline, our Caregiver Support Coordinator will walk alongside you through that critical moment, listening to your urgent need, and doing her best to point you in the right direction.

And while we might not offer a Foster Village program that will meet that specific need, we want to connect you to a support service that will. When you need a village of support, call (737) 377-6162.
