Foster Family Support

We work with some of the best foster families in the world!

But even these superheroes need support sometimes. Here’s how we empower local families on their foster care journey. 

Grant a Wish

Sometimes there are things that kids in foster care would like to do or need to do, but foster families just don’t have the financial resources available. That’s where our Grant a Wish program comes in. Foster parents, apply here for help with camps, class trips, lessons, sports, tutoring, medical needs, and more.


We have several resources for clothing for kids in foster care!

Newborn to 5 Years

Our local clothing closet is available with clothing, diapers, and baby gear.

5 Years to 6th Grade

Alicia’s Closet in Columbus is accepting referrals.

7th Grade to 12th Grade

Contact us to reach a local donor who is collecting name-brand clothing for teens in foster care.

Material support

One of Fostering Further’s great strengths is the ability to connect foster family needs with community resources. Check out our Get Help page for everything from bikes to dresses. We may be able to find someone to help!

Foster Care

One of the best ways to help kids in foster care is to become a foster parent.

Respite care is a form of foster care. When a foster parent is unable to care for a child (for example, a medical reason, a vacation, or just needing a break), they reach out for respite care. Respite parents take kids into their home on a short-term basis—from a few hours to a few weeks.

Some respite care requires minimal training and a background check, while other care requires full foster care certification. All respite care is important and desperately needed right now. Contact us to find out more!


We have fun events for foster families throughout the year! Check out our events page to see what’s coming up.

We can’t do this without your help.

Your donation helps children have a better shot at a bright future.
