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