Equipping caregivers with support
When a child is placed with a family, they often arrive with just the clothes on their back. Foster families receive little notice before a child is placed with them and must quickly turn their house into a home for a child they have just met. As families and children continue their journey together, other needs arise, including providing therapeutic support for children who have experienced trauma.
Foster Village is here for families every step of the way. Through our material resources, references, and other support, we help equip caregivers so they can focus on helping the children in their care to thrive.
“Foster Village has been such a huge support in our foster placements! This organization has really made a difference. They were able to provide everything we needed to be able to care for our emergency placements: toddler beds, mattresses, clothes, shoes, a baby monitor, and even put in some fun books and toys into the mix. They were even able provide specific items that they knew the kids would find special to them to help give them a smile at such a difficult time in their lives. And they did all of this in record time when the items were needed most.” – Chantal
