Foster Care Program
Providing comprehensive guidance and steadfast support for churches called to care for children in their communitySchedule a Meeting
Because of our constant desire to meet your church where it’s at, this process can take up to 6 months.
1. Initial Meeting w/ church ministry leaders
2. Launch foster care program at your church
3. Onboard potential foster families
4. Begin placing children in homes
Our Foster Care Program at WinShape Homes goes above and beyond to shepherd your church congregation through the process. Whether you need homework help or an extra set of hands to prepare dinner, we are here to support your church and your families to ensure that everyone is well-equipped to help a child flourish and find a way home.
How We Support Your Church’s Foster Parents
We guide your church members through the entire process, from initial interest to child placement to permanency (if needed). Our unparalleled support includes:
Free IMPACT/foster and respite pre-training
Reimbursement for drug screens, CPR/First Aid, and water safety training
Free continuing education classes from WinShape Homes trainers and external facilitators
24-hour access to a WinShape Homes Case Manager
Monthly support for extracurricular activities
A wrap-around community that gives constant support for the foster families
We partner with churches because we know we can’t meet this need on our own. With the church, we can partner with families who share our Christian values and minister to the children in an effective way. Secondly, the organic community and support that can be built in a church is a powerful resource to foster families.
