What is Fostering Connecitons?
Fostering Connections is an online platform where the foster/ adoptive community can share needs they have for tangible items. The general public can also post items available for donation in a simple and accessible way. The goal of Fostering Connections is to bridge the gap between the tangible needs of the foster/ adoptive community and the resources available in the Central Valley.JOIN NOW
Who Can Use Foster Connections?
Foster and adoptive parents and adult adoptees can post their needs directly on the Fostering Connections dashboard. Social workers and others who work with this population can also join and post needs on behalf of the individuals they work with. Anyone can join Fostering Connections as a donor in order to post items they have available for donation or to respond to needs posted by our other members.
Why Fostering Connections?
City Without Orphans has seen an increasing number of requests for tangible items like beds, clothing and toiletries. We often will handle these requests manually, however, this dashboard will help to make the process of connecting needs and providers more efficient. As a result, time and resources are freed up for our organization. Fostering Connections is moderated by one of our staff members who is available to help with needs and donations whenever needed.JOIN NOW
Fostering Connections Business and Church Partners
We are working to build a network of business and church partners who assist us in meeting the tangible needs of the foster and adoptive community in the Central Valley. Our business partners offer discounted goods and services to Fostering Connections members. Church partners help by offering specific resources that are available through their existing ministries and by being a point of contact when needs arise that we cannot meet within our usual donor base.JOIN NOW
