PSF is excited to launch a new campaign to celebrate National Foster Care Month, which is recognized annually in May. Our “We Foster Care” campaign focuses on the power of community in supporting local youth in foster care and the families who serve them. We understand that fostering may not be for your family, or that it just might not be for your family right now. We also understand that for the more than 200 local youth in foster care, we have the collective power to foster love and hope – that is how WE FOSTER CARE! Join us, and decide how you can support foster care needs in your community. Whatever you have to give, it’s enough to make a big difference in life of a child.
Foster Hope – Provide hope to the local youth in care by supporting their ability to participate in important milestones and opportunities. We’ve made it easy to donate online this month and, when you do, every dollar will go toward providing youth in our care specific items tailored to their needs. These funds help us cover costs for graduation, prom, summer camp, new clothing for children entering care and so much more.
Foster Love – Show love by supporting our local Partner Families (foster parents) who are saying “yes” to children in need of a temporary, loving and stable home. You may know a Partner Family right now – offer to bring them dinner, babysit or run an errand. Maybe you don’t know a Partner Family yet – contact us and we’ll get you connected! No matter your situation, there is always something to do to say, “thanks!”
Foster Care – Ready to take a bigger step? Call us today or visit our Partner Family page to learn more about becoming a licensed foster parent. When you do, you’ll learn about the process, requirements and support available to you. We have a current need in all of our counties to make sure youth entering care are able to stay in their own communities and keep important connections with their friends, schools and other local supports. When you choose to foster care, you are making a commitment to foster hope and love in children who need it most.
