Care Communities

Helping Families Foster Longer and Stronger

The Importance of Care Communities

Nationally, 50% of foster parents quit after their first year or their first placement. That means we not only need to increase the number of families caring for vulnerable children, but we need to create support for these families.

Care Communities have proven to retain up to 90% of those foster parents, helping them foster longer and stronger.

“I would have quit fostering if it weren’t for my Care Community.”
