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: Southeast Wisconsin (Jefferson and Waukesha County)
Volunteers: Teams of 6-8 volunteers (who live in Southeast Wisconsin) per foster family
Application deadline: July 30, 2019
Each family will be different, but some areas of support could include: childcare, yard work, homework help, light home maintenance, meal prep, or transportation.
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 working with vulnerable children, understanding abuse, and trauma informed care.
The Foster Care Support program provides assistance to foster families by connecting eager volunteers to families in need who live in their area. The program is currently running in Southeast Wisconsin, but future locations will be added as the program develops.
