Community Outreach Events.png

Being a foster family has many challenges. Our Community Outreach Events share a common goal:

 

Support

 

50% of foster parents "retire" after their first year or first placement.

Why? So many times it is because they don't feel supported.

It is our hope that through our events, we show foster families that they are not alone.  Through supporting the family as a whole, our hope is they can continue providing for the foster children in their care longer, providing stability and reducing the need for a child to move between foster homes.

What is Recharge?​

Recharge is a afternoon off for foster/kinship parents in our community. Our adult & high school volunteers provide fun, safe and engaging activities for your foster kiddos and other children in the home.

 

Recharge is currently available for kids ages 0 - 10 years.
