Foster Care - Other Ways to Help


Not able to Foster or Adopt a child……
         There are other ways you can help!!

  • Host a special craft project for our foster/adoptive children at an upcoming event
  • Hold a coat, pajama, school supply drive through your church, business, or local civic group
  • Sponsor/cater a meal for our foster/adoptive families during one of their trainings or help us cook a meal for foster/adoptive families.
  • If you have a training topic you specialize in that would pertain to the care of children and wish to share with our foster and adoptive families then please let us know.  All foster families are required to seek 10 hours of ongoing training per year; therefore we are always seeking training opportunities (free or at a reduced rate).
  • Donate gently used clothing from newborn to size 12. Updated equipment like cribs, strollers, packs and plays, etc., as long as they are clean. Also the Foster Closet will accept donations of diapers, toiletries, and school supplies, birthday cards, children stickers. Due to limited space, the closet will not accept: toys, formula, or shoes.  
  • Support the Foster/Adoptive Parent Association by making a monetary donation. Send donations to:
    P.O. Box 2071
    Fletcher, NC 28732
