What We Do

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.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS: We know that stressors related to COVID-19 can impact children's ability to be safe from neglect and abuse. Our services are especially critical right now for foster and kinship families to have access to resources that sustain them so they can keep saying yes. We are 100% community-funded so every bit helps us meet the needs!

Interesting Info

FVC has delivered critical needs to 250 children coming into a new foster home within 24 hours.
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.
