The Founders of Foster One Started their foster care journey in 2014. Quickly, they discovered how few resources and support systems were in place and available for those involved within the foster care system. What started as a newly licensed foster family looking for support has turned into a complete resource center for foster families, kinship families, social workers and biological parents.
One of the very first initiatives that was tackled by Foster One was the burnout rate of foster parents. 50% of first-time foster parent’s burnout and do not keep their homes open for a second placement. Foster One has developed proven resources to support and equip those involved in the foster care system. Through these resources, we have seen nearly 90% of families involved within Foster One continue to there second, third and more placements, including adoption.
Through to process of supporting foster parents and social workers, the need for support for biological parents became very clear. Working closely with counties and social workers, Foster One has been supporting and equipping biological parents who are working hard at both preventing foster care as well as being reunified back with their child.
Thanks for visiting Foster One. What you will find is different ways we support the foster care system as well as how everyone can be involved.
