Help Us Champion Foster Families

Partner with us as we work toward a Michiana community of empowered Foster families.

Over 1300 Children Are in Foster Care in Michiana

50%

of foster families quit within the first year.

50%

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

3%

of children in foster care will graduate from college.

Now more than ever, teenagers need encouragement and support. They need to know they are not alone, and caring adults are here to help them be successful on their journey.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why do you exist if the government already provides funds and services?

    There are a lot of holes in the government welfare system. We provide much needed support to the Foster family and child. Kids come into care with the clothes on their back. Foster families fund their initial needs for the first month with little help. Michiana Family Center offers care at the point of need without forms or red tape. Finally, the youth in foster care need love and support. The government does not provide that; people do.
