What part will you play?

There is a role for all of us. Whether caring for a child in your home or providing support to a child or family, there is no insignificant role.

The Five Needs of Foster Care

We desperately need more foster and adoptive families, but change doesn’t stop there. We know the task can be overwhelming, so we have identified 5 major areas of need within the foster care system:

  • family preservation,
  • foster care,
  • adoption,
  • aging out and
  • supporting roles.

When there is adequate support and volunteers within all these 5 categories, then we can confidently say that we are working to solve the foster care crisis. What role will you play?

“FHA's mission to educate, equip and empower churches to serve foster families and the children under their care has made a huge difference in the work we do with the Starry emergency shelter. We could not do what we do without the support FHA provides.”

“While parenting kids from hard places isn't always easy, before FHA we didn't really know if it was even possible.”
