When children arrive to a foster home, their world has been shattered and they are they are experiencing the effects of trauma and neglect.
Foster parents are charged with putting their world back together—reassuring the child(ren) of their safety and stability by providing a nurturing place for them to call home. In addition, foster parents are responsible to schedule and attend doctor, therapist, court, and parental visitation appointments plus maintain the day-to-day demands of caring for the basic needs of their family.
Children that are in foster care are hurting due to struggles that most of us cannot fathom. It is important that foster families have what they need to care for these little hearts and souls.
Teams of professionals are summoned to help the biological family address their barriers and needs, but few resources exist to support the foster family with the same care and attention. This is where we are called to help.
