Foster parents are vital members of the local safety net of people and services that protect, care for and help heal Sonoma County children and teens who’ve suffered abuse, neglect or abandonment at home.
Through no fault of their own, each day between 50-75 Sonoma County foster children and teens need a safe place to live.
Most just need a temporary haven while their parents get help coping with the issues that created an unstable home.
Others are teens trying to stand on their own two feet and just need a room to rent and some encouragement.
Some need a new forever family through adoption.
How children are treated in Our Community will shape their lives.
We need to show them kindness and give them faith in their futures.
By caring for a local foster child, foster parents enrich not only the child's life, but their own.
