In our first year as a 501c3, we moved quick, giving families what they asked for:
PRACTICAL SUPPORT FROM PEOPLE WHO “GET IT“
We combined strategies of storytelling + neighborly volunteering.
SCROLL DOWN TO JOIN US FOR 2019
The idea is simple: match one foster family with one (trained & vetted) Foster Neighbor to bring a meal once a month.
We created Foster Neighbors, matching 60 volunteers around Colorado to support foster families as they help a child heal from abuse and neglect.
Our year-end podcast:
Will you please join us for 2019, as we:
Match 400 families with Foster Neighbors
Create fresh podcast & video series to make foster care impossible to ignore
Train teams to replicate our model in other states
OUR 2018 STATS
35% of our volunteers serve single moms or single foster moms.
95% of our matches continue to this day, some in their 14th consecutive month with the same family.
Foster parents report they feel more supported to continue fostering, building their endurance to help traumatized children.
Volunteers personally connect with foster care, something they previously felt too busy to do.
Foster families and people curious about foster care both report feeling more equipped to stay or get involved, thanks to our podcast.
