Supporting child and family well-being starts with connection. When kids enter foster care, we keep them connected to their families through visitation and help establish connections between parents and foster families to build a strong community that works together to best support child(ren) while in foster care.
We aren’t afraid to be the first – the first to try new ways of supporting families, to find innovative solutions to long-standing challenges within child welfare by listening to families directly impacted by foster care. That’s why we partnered with Pierce County Juvenile Court to pilot the Pierce County Early Childhood Court program which supports families who have infants and toddlers in foster care by meeting more frequently to promote greater support for families and children.
And while kids are in foster care, we promise to provide safe and affirming homes for as long as they need by providing quality support and training to foster and kinship caregivers. Kids do best when they have a team of people loving them and meeting their needs – together.
It takes our whole community to support kids and families. Whether it’s learning more, becoming a foster parent, advocating, volunteering, or donating — it takes all of us to thrive. Will you join us?
