Foster families are all around you. They are regular people who are shifting their entire lives to say yes to children, doing all the things we do and adding in court hearings, visits, training, and giving love young hearts who have known trauma and neglect. These families are doing the work, and they cannot do it alone. Foster Village Charlotte is in their corner, fighting for their voices and meeting their needs. We know that without supported foster parents, there won’t be enough safe and loving homes for children who desperately need them. Help us to support these families: the front lines of foster care.
- Over 1,500 children served the past three years and $250,000+ of direct services.
- Without community support, the retention rate of a new foster family is around 50% after the first year or first placement.
- 100% of our women-led team are current/former foster parents, empowering a peer-driven support system
