We are always looking for volunteers to help us with a variety of activities. Your commitment could be as short as one day, or as long as you like. Some things you may help with include: distributing posters/flyers to local businesses, hosting our display table at malls/shows/fairs, helping with mail outs, etc.

For those who love to get up in front of an audience (or for those who like to get better), opportunities will exist to join the ‘Foster Voices’ crew.

Your involvement could also be as simple as bringing this Information Kit to your next PAC meeting, staff conference, coffee group, or doctor’s office and helping us spread the word that foster families are needed in our community.
