Foster Care Love Box

We created the Love Box program to walk alongside foster children and their caretakers by offering consistent support through intentional giving, relationship building and mentorship.

The Love Box Program

EMPOWERING FOSTER CARE CHILDREN TO SUCCEED

The need:

Children are removed from their homes and placed in foster care due to neglect, abandonment, or because they are the victim of physical, sexual, or emotional abuse. When children are removed from the home they are confused and upset, and need the temporary protection and nurturing that a foster family can provide. In the foster care system children move homes, on average, 7 times in 2 years. This is usually because foster parents are unsupported or overwhelmed.

our solution:

The Love Box program provides foster families with community and holistic support so that they can continue to do the important and meaningful work of being a foster parent. As a Love Box group, you will be matched with a local foster family based on compatibility and scope of needs.  When our families are matched with committed volunteers that show up monthly, parents feel supported, and children gain a sense of belonging and self confidence. This program requires a one year commitment.
Not everyone is called to foster or adopt, but everyone can make a difference in a child's life.
