Strengthen a FAMILY!

Become a FOSTER/ADOPTIVE Parent!

There are 150+ children at any given time in foster care in Brunswick County because their own families are in crisis and are unable to provide for their essential well-being.

  YOU have the power to change a child’s world for the better and offer the love and support that will stay with them their entire lives.  YOU can give mothers and fathers time to work things out.  YOU can help keep brothers and sisters stay together.  YOU will have the chance to mentor not only a child, but their family as well.

They come from many different backgrounds, but they have the same hopes, dreams, fears, and needs as any child!

 

Our next Foster/Adoptive Parent 30-hour training is scheduled as follows:
