Caring for kids from hard places does not have to be a journey you take alone. There are others just like you who understand what the journey is like and are here to be a community of support for you.
At Foster Village, we help bring this community together and provide fellowship, camaraderie, relief and resources for foster, kinship, and adoptive parents who need to know they are not alone.
We regularly host community events, including:
- Mom Gatherings
- Dad Gatherings
- Caregiver Gatherings
- Parents’ Night Out Events
- Play Dates
- Family Gatherings
- Equip Workshops (gain tools and knowledge from experts)
These events are open to all! Browse the events feed below to find an upcoming event near you. We would love for you to join us!
Our monthly Moms Gathering is a time for foster, kinship, and adoptive moms to connect and decompress. Get a babysitter or bring the kids for great food, drinks, and good conversation with other like-minded mommas.
Join us for our upcoming Dads Gathering. This open group of guys gets together on the third Tuesday of every month at Radio Coffee. Invite your friends and mark your calendar to join us! This is a safe space for foster, kinship, and adoptive dads to meet, eat, and share with those that get it.
Foster, adoptive, and kinship caregivers - we'd love for you to join us for this month's Caregiver Gathering - an evening designed to help you connect with others as you gain helpful resources and tools for the journey. Join us to meet other caregivers around Foster Village and enjoy a complimentary dinner!
If you're a foster parent who would love a place to learn about navigating the sometimes complicated relationship with biological family, this gathering is for you! Join us as we share resources and best practices for the reunification process, and learn to be a healthy, relational support not only for the children in your care, but for the whole family.
It's time for some winter family fun! Join us on Tuesday, December 12th from 7-8 pm for a family skate night at the Central Plaza at Hill Country Galleria. Please arrive by 6:45 pm to sign a waiver and lace up those skates. We can't wait to see you there!
Plan to join us on Saturday, December 9th at My Gym from 5:30-7 pm for an evening of fun that all ages will enjoy. We'll have dinner provided by Hat Creek Burger and a guest appearance by Santa.

Join us every Tuesday at 10:30 am for “Once Upon a Storytime" with Allison at our Limerick resource center (North Austin). Allison is a retired teacher and a long-time Foster Village volunteer with a heart for our youngest kiddos, and we can't wait for you to meet her!
