We empower and equip older volunteers from faith communities to serve as "extended family" to foster families in both practical and emotional ways. We provide the kind of long-term relational and environmental support the child welfare system is not designed to provide, and which science says is essential to nurturing brains and lives after childhood abuse and neglect. We stay with kids from infancy well into life beyond foster care, adapting to their changing needs until they no longer need us.


Foster teens need healing relationships


Volunteers support both foster parents and kids


When community comes together, we restore hope
