Question: How can I help in foster care without being a foster parent?

Question: How can I help in foster care without being a foster parent?

 

There are lots of ways to get involved in foster care outside of fostering. We have recently shared how to mentor kids (https://fosterarizona.org/question-do-you-have-or-need-mentors-like-other-foster-care-agencies/) . This is a great option to have direct contact with kids without being a foster parent. Here are some other ideas of ways to get involved:

 

  1. Donate gently used clothing and other items to non-profits that support foster and kinship families. Here are a few choices:

Jose’s Closet – http://josescloset.org/

Arizona Helping Hands – http://www.azhelpinghands.org/

Helen’s Hope Chest – http://www.mesaunitedway.org/helens-hope-chest-1

 

  1. Support activities like tutoring, gymnastics, karate, dance, prom, camp, etc. for kids in care through donations to Arizona Friends of Foster Children: http://fosterfriendaz.org/taxcredit/summer2015

 

  1. Take pictures, style hair, or write bios to help kids looking for their forever families by volunteering with the Children’s Heart Gallery. http://childrensheartgallery.org/?page_id=220

 

Foster Arizona is always looking for volunteers to help with awareness events, kids events, marketing, promotions, original productions, administrative help, and more.  Contact info@fosteraz.com.

 

These are just a few ways to get involved. If none of these opportunities are a fit, we would love to help you find something that is.  Thank you for your great question! If you have questions, send them to #youaskedfa or Kim@fosteraz.com
