In gardening, the term, companion planting, means sowing seeds in such a way that plants help each other grow. Our board of directors is digging in, planting seeds of hope for children from foster care, and expecting a plentiful harvest.
Cultivating Families' mission is to equip communities of faith to care for foster and adopted children. Our vision is "a future where all communities of faith care for foster and adopted children." Our board of directors believes that "when all faith communities care for foster and adopted children, NO CHILD WILL BE LEFT TO NAVIGATE LIFE ALONE."
It's a dire need. Children from foster care, not adopted by the age of eighteen, "emancipate," and are at risk to navigate the world on their own without lifelong families and relationships. Countless studies show that this often leads to increased school dropout rates, substance abuse, unemployment, higher percentages of incarceration, and many other struggles. Serving all faiths, Cultivating Families is a neutral stakeholder that brings everyone to the table including The Department of Family and Protective Services, Faith leaders, child placement agencies, and qualified therapists.
Our board of directors invites you to help make a difference in the lives of these children by making a donation, becoming a Corporate Sponsor, or volunteering for Cultivating Families. Your contribution is needed to help grow and expand programs that help equip communities of faith to nurture the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of children from foster care.
Your generous support of the kids in our local area is making a difference every day in our community. By investing in the children, you are investing in the future.
