How it Works
First, we train you in the best practices for supporting a kinship or foster family. How to start a conversation, how to know if you're being helpful, questions to avoid, etc. We run a background check. Then, we introduce you to the family and provide support for six months to help everyone feel comfortable. After six months, you graduate from our Neighbor Program and continue your friendship on your own (or, if you're ready for a break, we will help you say a friendly goodbye.)
Our volunteers commit to six months of giving support to a family with monthly meals (these can be homemade, takeout, or groceries). On average expect to spend roughly $10 per month per member of the family.
