End of Year Giving Campaign
Celebrate the end of a hard year by making it better for someone else!
As we head into 2021, we want to triple our impact this year, and we need your help to do it! So far in 2020, we have connected 8 foster families (this includes 26 children) with a Care Team - volunteers who check in once a month to provide support like a meal, items for the children, or encouragement. We have also provided support to 20 families through one-time care packages/meals/gifts, and an additional 40 families will be receiving gifts this Christmas! We are able to do this because of our amazing volunteers and donors. We have over 20 volunteers showing up to love and care for foster families each month. Foster Well provides a way for anyone to be involved in foster care!
Why Foster Well? There are foster families who have chosen to open their hearts and their homes to care for the 499 children and youth in foster care in Delaware. Neglect, substance abuse, or other traumatic events, lead to children entering the foster care system at no fault of their own. These children and their foster families, are trying to adjust to their new life together. The complexity of emotions and behaviors, as well as navigating the foster care system, can lead to burnout in the parents and more trauma for the kids. That's where Foster Well steps in, to be a bridge between the foster care community and those that want to love and support them.
You can be a part of building that bridge through your financial donation! You can donate to our Giving Campaign here with either a one-time gift or by becoming a monthly donor. $25/month allows us to send a gift to an overwhelmed foster family to encourage them. $50/month supports the case management involved in connecting a foster family with their Care Team. These are just a couple of examples of what your donations will do for the foster care community!
Please share about Foster Well with your friends and family who may be interested in being a part of the work we're doing!
