Faith Communities

How your church can help

 

Members of your congregation can support children in foster care by helping us find foster and adoptive families. Some activities take only a few minutes or a few hours; other support can be given on a regular basis. Here are some suggestions of ways to support foster parents and help children in our community find the safety and stability they need.

  • Identify and publicly recognize foster and adoptive parents in your congregation by saying thank you from the pulpit.
  • Find something that a small group or the entire church can do to support the foster parents. Provide meals for them, organize transportation or help with activities for the kids.
  • Host Orientation Meetings: Invite current foster families in your church along with your local DHS contact to host an information session about becoming a foster parent.
