Fostering Further is a 501c(3) non-profit organization dedicated to supporting children in foster care, families, and caseworkers in central Ohio. With more than 300 kids currently in care, there are all kinds of ways to help us in our mission. Find out how you can get involved!


Kids in foster care deserve the same opportunities as other kids their age. Their involvement in school, sports, music, and extracurricular activities gives them a sense of normalcy and improves their academics, behavior, and identity development.

Foster families are not reimbursed for these “extras”, and that’s where our community has a chance to step in and help!

Thanks & Testimonials

“It is such a blessing to know that our community cares so much for these children. […] the donors want to make sure that these children get to participate in the fun things, too. Those are the activities that make a childhood magical!”
