Welcome to Foster Guardian

No one should foster alone.

We want to bridge the gap between caregivers and the support they desperately need so they can keep caring for children who need a safe and loving home.

    CELEBRATING SUCCESS: WIC Support Group

    Our WIC BOGO group is educating and giving weekly access to twice the food that they would receive through WIC alone! This weekly “hand up” is helping over 500 foster and in-need families every week and is still growing rapidly!

    NEEDS FINANCING: Parent Support Center & Helpline

    Once operational, this center will give foster homes the support they need so they don’t have to close and it will give parents the preventative services they need to prevent children from being removed from their home.

    Please consider sponsoring a family or becoming a corporate sponsor today.

    Kids Are Becoming Homeless

    The Need

    Every night, children are sleeping in offices and orphanages because there are not enough loving homes open to take them. Within the first year of being licensed, 50% of foster families are unable to continue due to lack of support.

    How You can make a difference

    Just like kids in transition need a support team; so do caregivers. You can provide support and encouragement to families who need it most. 

    Or even better, become a Foster Parent and give a child a safe and loving home.

     

    What we do

    Our Programs

    Resource Hub

    When caregivers need help, they often can’t find existing programs. Our Resource Hub will give caregivers a “one-stop-shop” where they can find the help they need, when they need it.

    WIC Support Group

    Young kids especially need sufficient neutrition in order to learn and grow. That’s we we provide a support group that helps hundreds of foster and in-need families get more food every week through education and leverage of the WIC program.

    Foster Success Program

    Losing 50% of newly licensed foster homes is a big deal. Foster Parents feel overwhelmed, underappreciated, and often alone when it comes to trying to help the kids in their care. We aim to change that by providing them with Care Navigators so that they never feel alone or unsupported.
