ENCOMPASS: Community & Collaboration for Foster Families
a program for foster families in the Greater Worcester Area

Do you want to help foster children and families in the Greater Worcester area?

Do you want to give back to your community?

Do you want to make connections with others that share your commitment to making a difference?

WE NEED YOU!

ENCOMPASS aims to create extended community support systems around foster families, who often report feeling a lack of support from their friends, family and neighbors.

We are seeking passionate Community Support Volunteers to provide a variety of services to foster parents.

WHAT CAN I DO?


Community Support Volunteers can offer the following to foster families in the Greater Worcester Area:

  1. Virtual enrichment activities (helping with homework, teaching a skill, playing a game, engaging in an activity together, or even simply checking in to name a few.)
  2. Meal Prep and Delivery
  3. Care Boxes
The services offered through ENCOMPASS ensure foster families in the Greater Worcester Area are supported while following COVID-19 safety guidelines
