Half of all foster parents
quit within the first year.
Foster Source is changing that.
We serve foster and kinship parents so they can foster
with confidence and help children in care heal.
Foster parents and kinship caregivers are underprepared, unsupported, and overwhelmed.
Children in foster care need more than love; they need to heal from trauma, through foster parents who are nurtured with the capability to foster better and foster longer.
When foster parents quit, children in their care endure the additional trauma of being moved again. When we nurture and value foster parents, the children in their care heal sooner.
92% of our families report that they feel confident to care for vulnerable children longer than they anticipated thanks to our services.
How Foster Source Helps Foster and Kinship Parents
We teach parents how to build trusting relationships through trauma-informed skills and resources.
We provide items that soften the foster care experience and help caregivers connect with children.
We support foster and kinship families through sponsored virtual therapy and equine-assisted parenting labs.
Not a foster parent, but still want to help?
Foster Source depends on donations and volunteers to provide life-changing services to foster families and kinship caregivers throughout Colorado.
Every little bit counts! One-time, monthly, or in-kind donations are accepted and greatly appreciated.
We’re always looking for volunteers to help with childcare during our trainings and driving voluteers to deliver items.
