Love Box Leader

We created the Love Box program to walk alongside children in the foster care system, as well as their caretakers, by offering consistent support through intentional giving, relationship building, and mentorship. 

THE NEED:

Children are removed from their homes and placed in foster care due to neglect, abandonment, or because they are the victim of physical, sexual, or emotional abuse. Because of this trauma, they experience PTSD at a rate more than twice that of combat veterans. When children are removed from the home, they are confused and upset, and they need the temporary protection and nurturing that a foster family can provide. We know that trauma can be healed in the context of healthy, supportive relationships. (Sources)
 

OUR SOLUTION:

The Love Box program provides foster families with community and holistic support so that they can continue to do the important and meaningful work of being a foster parent. As a Love Box group, volunteers will be matched with a local foster family based on compatibility and scope of needs.  When our families are matched with committed volunteers who show up monthly, parents feel more supported and children gain a greater sense of belonging and self-confidence. This program requires a one year commitment.
