What We Do

We prevent children from unnecessarily entering foster care during a family crisis and wrap around families with a loving network of supportive relationships. We provide safe, caring homes where parents may voluntarily have their children cared for temporarily while seeking to restore stability in their lives. The heartbeat of what we provide is
community. The relationship formed between volunteers in local churches and families in need is central to our ministry, creating a haven for children and a support network for parents. Our goal is lifelong friendships that reduce isolation and help families to thrive long-term.

Interesting Info

Since 2017, our team of volunteers, churches, and leadership have provided 187 child hostings, over 4,300 nights of care, and reunited 100% of children hosted.
Only 42% of children who enter foster care in NC reunify with their parents. We deflect families from unnecessarily entering foster care due to social isolation
NO family in should be fractured because they don't have a support system. We want to expand across the Carolinas to champion family preservation!
