What We Do

Today there are nearly 600 children in the Charlotte foster care system due to neglect, physical and sexual abuse, drug addiction, and domestic violence. They typically arrive at foster homes empty handed and with little notice. It's the foster family's role to quickly supply these children with basic needs, help them feel safe and welcomed, and stay emotionally strong as they support children who have experienced trauma and loss.

By creating a village of support for our local children in foster care and those caring for them, Foster Village Charlotte meets urgent needs, provides educational and emotional support, and advocates for lasting change in the welfare system. We exist to stabilize foster families, leading to better retention of high quality homes and a decrease in disruptions for children that yields increased attachment and healthier long term outcomes.

Interesting Info

We have supported over 100 foster, kinship, and resource families and the children they care for.
Without community support, the retention rate of a new foster family is around 50% after the first year or first placement.
Our goal is to retain quality, caring foster families through support, education, and a community network while bringing dignity and order to a foster child.
