Fostering Hope strives to reverse the bleak outcomes for foster children in our community who have suffered abuse and neglect. The numbers are staggering: Within two (2) years of leaving the system, half of foster children in the U.S. will either be unemployed or homeless; girls will be five (5) times at risk of becoming pregnant.
Fostering Hope is changing the odds….
How do we do it? It all begins with family.
Fostering Hope’sVolunteer Teamsserve as an extended family for our foster families. Their friendship and assistance provides a crucial missing link-the stability, enrichment and connections that are necessary for every child to succeed. It all comes down to what kids need: Stability. Enrichment. Community.
Join us on Thursday, October 6th from Noon-1PM for a fundraising lunch at the Pinery at the Hill. Free to attend and considering bringing friends, family and colleagues to support our local foster families, their children and those teens aging-out of the system.
