Our mission is to provide relevant training, resources and support to foster parents from a trauma-informed approach, giving them the skills and confidence to spark healing in vulnerable children.
Foster Parent Support Groups - No one understands a foster parent better than fellow foster parents, and the private location provides a safe, judgement-free environment for foster parents to vent, ask advice, laugh and cry.
Foster Parent Trainings - Foster Parents always need continuing education hours, and support groups and trainings are often the best way to fulfill those requirements. Foster Source provides varied training seminars for continuing education and provides appropriate childcare.
Foster Parent Recruitment - the need for foster parents is always dire. Foster Source speaks at churches and organizations to provide brief information sessions to dispel myths that tend to turn families away. Providing current information in an open, non-committed environment enables more potential families to seek certification services from local agencies.
Meeting Needs - Counties are often limited in the resources they can provide. Funding is extremely limited and bureaucratic red tape keeps effective help grounded. Foster Source uses donated and raised funds to meet needs of local foster families and children.
