By providing care and support to the families who open their hearts and homes to vulnerable children, foster families are able to foster children for longer periods of time and may even accept more children into their home. With the opioid epidemic causing the number of children in foster care to increase, strong foster families are needed now more than ever.
Not all feel called to foster, but you can support the families who do.
Location: In your community
Each family will be different, but some areas of support could include: yard work, light home maintenance, meal prep, and more. You will join other volunteers as part of a Family Care Team which is dedicated to supporting the foster family and their specific needs.
Hours will vary based on volunteer availability and the foster family's needs.
Kingdom Workers will offer training throughout the year for volunteers to learn more about topics like how to support vulnerable children, understanding abuse, and trauma informed care.
The Foster Support program provides assistance to foster families by connecting eager volunteers to families in need who live in their area. If you are interested in starting a Family Care Team for foster families in your area through your church, please contact us for more information.
