Help Us Solve Central Florida's Foster Care Capacity Problem
There are currently over 23,000 displaced children in Florida’s foster care system.
The foster care system only has availability at any given time for 20% of the children who need a home. With over 1,500 children in the foster care system in Central Florida alone, there is a very real and urgent need to provide safe, stable foster families and foster family supports to help these children in our community thrive.
Without your help, two-thirds of the children in foster will change families, schools and/or communities seven or more times, and many of them will end up two years or more behind their peers in school due to the constant disruption to their living circumstances and the accompanying emotional upheaval.
A COVID-19 AWARE EVENT
The health and safety of our foster families, family advocates, support volunteers, generous sponsors and community are very important to us which is why our team is working hard to organize a safe and COVID-19 aware event in partnership with our host First Baptist Church Orlando.
How You Can Help
Join us on Thursday, March 25th at First Baptist Church Orlando to accelerate the FOF at Grace Landing’s momentum, expand our faith-community-of-care and meet the demand for more quality foster homes in our community so we can get these children the love, support, and skills they need to transition successfully to adulthood.
Together with your support, we will recruit, train, and support 100 new foster families, 100 family advocates, and 300 family support volunteers in Central Florida by 2023.
With your help, every child will have a family, and every family will have the support they deserve.
