Care Communities

Nationally, 50% of foster families quit either after the first year or after their first placement, primarily because they didn’t feel supported. The Care Communities model has been proven to retain up to 95% of those foster parents. Care communities are teams of 6-8 people that wrap around a foster family, adoptive family, or Safe Families Host Family. They offer emotional, spiritual, and practical physical support. Members choose which roles they want to play in the care community. Care Community volunteers will be assigned a family that is close to you geographically, not more than a 15 minute drive. 
 
 

CarePortal
 
Help meet the practical needs of vulnerable families in our community through the CarePortal with Hands of Hope. CarePortal bridges the gap between children in need and churches who want to help. The families and needs (ex: home repair projects, bringing groceries, cribs, or bedding) are identified through the Department of Child Services and entered into the database. A Grace representative assesses the needs and communicates the opportunities to you through monthly emails.
