Foster Families and Children Need Local Community Support

Foster families are struggling due to lack of support, insufficient representation, and inadequate resources to treat children's emotional and social needs.


of foster families quit within the first year.


of children who age out of care will not obtain a high school diploma.


of children in foster care will graduate from college.

Every foster parent and child deserves hope, support, education, and an advocate. Kids in foster care have no control over their situation. They deserve to be loved and encouraged. Foster parents take on a huge responsibility. They deserve adequate support and encouragement.


Our Solution

Michiana Family Center is committed to connecting foster youth and foster families in Michiana with Michiana volunteers. This raises support for foster families in Michiana and encouragement for foster children so they can thrive as children and adults.
