Critical to the mission of Springs of Love is to establish Foster Teams in each of our parishes that will provide for the material needs of children in care, offer wrap-around support to foster families (including prayer, meals, childcare, rides, mentoring, etc.), host foster and adoption awareness events, and inspire more Catholics to consider fostering and adopting.
Sadly, 50% of foster families stop fostering after one year. However, the good news is that the retention rate increases to 90% when those families are supported by a care team in their community.
Please register your parish or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get started with your own Springs of Love Foster Team!
