What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Children placed in foster care face very high risks for much worse outcomes later in life than their peers who are not in foster care. This isn’t only because the situation that caused them to be placed in the care of the state was traumatic, but also because the experience of being in foster care layers on additional trauma. An overwhelming body of evidence shows that the kind of ongoing, chronic trauma experienced by these children not only severely impacts their emotional state and behavioral needs during childhood, but also leads to drastically poorer outcomes as they reach adulthood. One of the main contributors to the trauma children experience in foster care is the lack of community support and stable relationships with caring, responsible, dependable adults. Placement in the foster system can sometimes equate to stability, but more often children are repeatedly moved, often far from their community and all they know, uprooting and re-traumatizing them again and again.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Love Box Program

The Love Box program provides foster families with community and holistic support so that they can continue to do the important and meaningful work of being a foster parent. As a Love Box group, volunteers will be matched with a local foster family based on compatibility and scope of needs. When our families are matched with committed volunteers who show up monthly, parents feel more supported, and children gain a greater sense of belonging and self-confidence. This program requires a one-year commitment.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

In addition, the parenting of a hurt child takes tremendous resources of time, education, and heart. And when a foster parent gives up, effects ripple in our community and social and economic costs begin to accrue.

Children, youth, and families experiencing foster care desperately need community. This is why we have developed the Love Box and Dare to Dream programs––for people like you, who may not be called to foster or adopt, to create real impact through intentional giving, relationship building, and mentorship.

We know that trauma can be healed in the context of healthy, supportive relationships, and our programs help bring just that––relational healing, empowerment, and hope. We believe that “Not everyone is called to foster, not everyone is called to adopt, but everyone can make a difference in the life of a child.”

We've invented a new way to serve: heart-to-heart in the home of a family. Showing up for children. Encouraging youth. Supporting caretakers.

Our hope is that through our programs we can:
1) Walk alongside children, youth, and families in the foster care community by offering consistent support through intentional giving, relationship building, and mentorship.
2) Increase placement stability and minimize trauma by supporting the entire family unit.
3) Provide children, youth, and families with a sense of normalcy, during a time that can feel very uncertain.

1) We accomplish this through our Love Box and Dare to Dream programs, which match dedicated volunteers with youth and families experiencing foster care. These volunteers commit to being a consistent support in their lives, by meeting a minimum of once monthly with families (in our Love Box program) or twice monthly with youth (in our Dare to Dream program).
2) It is our hope that with this added layer of community, foster parents would have the support that they need to continue fostering, children would stay in placements longer, and the trauma caused by moving from home-to-home-to-home would be minimized.

By supporting the entire family we are able to minimize placement disruptions and Foster Parent burn out. This creates a healthier more bonded family environment and provides the child in care with a stable placement until permanency goals are achieved.

Our organization supports trained volunteers to provide our services. By supporting our volunteers we are quite capable of meeting the goal to support families.

While we are moving out of our pilot phase to providing the necessary case management to support families in our community. We have served several families and have a full case load of families on our wait list.
