Care Communities

Care Communities


A Care Community is a team of 6-8 committed volunteers who come alongside foster and adoptive families, providing practical, emotional and spiritual support.

50% of foster parents quit after their first year, or their first placement.
Care Communities has proven to retain up to 90% of those foster parents.


Foster and adoptive families need us, the Church.
