Love makes a family.
And in seasons where families need support, it’s love that leads to lending a hand.
Whether you’re new to the world or if you’ve been helping for decades, welcome to Foster Care Aware.
May is National Foster Care Awareness Month!
In celebration, we created brand new resources for our community to get involved and make a meaningful impact in a way that works for you.
Choose the path that’s best for you below.
I’m a community member and want to learn how I can help
I’d like more information about becoming a foster parent
I’m a social worker or professional and want to learn more
I’m a foster parent and I’m open to resources to make things a bit easier
The goal of Foster Care Aware is three-fold.
Awareness. To raise awareness about foster care and the need for emotionally intelligent foster parents
Encourage. To encourage community members to support the kid’s in their community by supporting friends who want to foster, becoming volunteers, donating, advocating, or becoming foster parents themselves.
Connect. To connect prospective foster folks with local agencies and training programs, volunteers with organizations, and people who care about the kids in our cities who want to be an active part of the solution with others who do too.

In partnership with:
“I could never do that.”
While we fully honor that everyone has a different capacity and interest in helping we ask that you please stop saying this.
Why? Because no child asked for the circumstance that led them into foster care. Yet, they’re doing their best anyway.
Humans are incredible. When times are tough, and when people we love need our help, we figure it out.
These humans are worth doing hard things for.
Which way to help is up to you.
If you take one thing away from FCA, let it be this:
You can help.
Bring it up. Talk to friends. Discuss possible solutions. Brainstorm how to give back to the social workers in your community. Fundraise together. Use your voice.
Your support matters.
