Serve & Support the Foster Community
There are many ways to support the foster community without becoming a foster parent. Organize a diaper/clothes/toys drive, thank your local Social Workers, share the need for foster parents in your community. If you’re not sure how you can best support the foster community, get in touch with us for ideas!
Become a Foster Parent
Foster families are needed in your community. Children in care need families of every race, marital status, religion, age, income, educational background or sexual orientation to best support them. You don’t need to own your own home, have children already, be young, wealthy, or a stay-at-home parent to foster. Visit Fostering Idaho or FosteringWA to learn more.
A Career in Child Welfare
Eastern Washington University offers many programs. Social work within child welfare is a fulfilling career. EWU offers both a BSW and MSW program. There are Child Welfare practicums in North Idaho.
Other ways to help
Involve your Business
Whether you own your own business or work for an awesome company, you can get involved.
We love to partner with local businesses to help spread the word about the need for foster parents in your community. We also can use your talent or skills in a multitude of ways. If you’re willing to help advertise for us, donate, or host events to recruit and support foster families let us know!
Start a Fundraiser
Get creative, the fundraising opportunities are endless.
Social Workers, Foster Parents, Foster children, Visitation Rooms, and Reunited Birth families all need items to provide the best care for the children. Consider starting a fundraiser to gather donations for these different groups.
Involve your Church
One Church One Child is always looking to build new partnerships.
Host a Parents’ Night Out, provide a space for Information Nights or Foster Parent Training & Support Groups, help train your church volunteers on caring for children with trauma, provide donations for your local foster community, etc. These are just a few ways your church can be involved. Our One Church One Child liaisons would love to connect with you on the greatest needs in your local area.
