Partner with us to serve families!

Whole Family Partners will ensure that each family that needs tools, resources, emotional, and educational support will have a dedicated case manager to empower and equip them to continue in the work of caring for the most vulnerable in our midst.

Did you know?

FACT: 50% of foster families quit within the first year, with an average of 35% quitting the 2nd year.

FACT: Divorce rates are reported to be higher in families of children with special needs than in the general population.

This is not because families aren’t “cut out” to parent – it is because caring for a child who has experienced developmental adversity is an investment that requires community support!  The cost to families that work to create healing environments for vulnerable children is felt at an emotional, physical, spiritual, relational, and financial level.

TraumaWise and Whole Family Partnership

One of the things that the TraumaWise program does is to provide Resources, Support, and Education to Parents who have said “yes” to that child and the cost. We have launched several programs to meet the whole family’s needs, including our recent in-home support program.

With over 600 families involved in the TraumaWise program, the needs are beyond what a Director can meet without more resources, which is why we are introducing the opportunity to partner with TraumaWise to provide case management and direct support to families.
