Volunteer Icon.jpgFoster families could not do what they do without a fleet of volunteers supporting them in this journey that is truly a community effort. There are several key support team volunteer opportunities within the FaithBridge Community of Care model that require a monthly commitment of 5-20 hours, depending on the role. The requirements and level of training also vary.

Three Steps to Volunteering

1. Attend Orientation: Encounter

Join us for a two-hour informational meeting to learn more about FaithBridge Foster Care. Register for a scheduled event, set up a one-on-one meeting or take the online course.

2. Complete the Application Process
You can begin the volunteer application process once you complete Encounter. Depending on your role, this may include some paperwork, fingerprinting, a background check and a drug test.

3. Volunteer Training
All adults must participate in a state-mandated, volunteer training to understand the unique challenges and opportunities that arise when working with foster children. You can register for an event near you once you have completed Encounter.

 

"The Community of Care began as somewhat influential as we realized how important these volunteers are to us. I love the heart of the families that not only want to support us, but have the desire to meet the needs for the kids in our care. They are not only support for us, but sweet friendships and special relationships."

The support from the FaithBridge Community of CareSM made all the difference for this family and even allowed for special circumstances to build a relationship with the birth family.
