For foster youth unable to live at home due to neglect or abuse, a safe and loving home to “feel normal” again can be all it takes. As a foster parent, you can help provide the love, stability and structure needed during a scary and traumatic time.

Our impact areas
Embrace Families provides, supports and manages a wide range of services and resources designed to address the many factors that contribute to the well-being of our community’s children and families. Your donation will directly support one or more of the following priorities.
No child should experience the pain of abuse, neglect or abandonment. Through our collaborative network of dedicated providers, we work to ensure that vulnerable children are protected and that they receive the help they need to feel secure and cared for. With your help, we provide safe havens while delivering medical, counseling and other essential services to help childhood victims heal and move towards brighter futures.
This includes: foster care, adoption services, victim therapy, child and family advocacy, and more.
To reduce the trauma of family separation, we work to restore and strengthen families before the need to enter the foster care system occurs. Our investment in diversion services includes homelessness prevention, family therapy, and youth mental health programs. With your help, we stabilize families by providing the necessary support they need to keep children safely in their homes.
This includes: case management, family in-home diversion services, family homelessness prevention, youth mental health programs, and more.
A child’s future should not be indelibly tarnished by events that brought them into the child welfare system. Our investment in youth services ensures that teens and young adults in foster care have the supplies, resources and skills necessary to thrive personally, to achieve academically, and to prepare for career and personal success. With your help, we provide the support they need to navigate the complex road to self-sufficient adulthood.
This includes: mentoring, tutoring, youth advocacy preparation, housing support, academic support, career readiness, independent living transition planning, driver license training, and more.
Whether you’re a former foster youth or have little-to-no experience within the foster care system, you can use your outside perspective to become a positive role model and champion for our foster youth.
