Hot Off the Press

At Foster + Heart, our mission is deeply rooted in creating positive and lasting impacts on the lives of children navigating the foster care system. Since our inception, we’ve been dedicated to providing essential support, nurturing homes, and memorable events for remarkable children in foster care.

Our Impact: Transforming Lives, One Heart at a Time

Through our Residential Care Facilities—Mimi’s House and the soon-to-open Bubba’s House—we’ve provided vital care and stability to countless children awaiting placement with the right foster family. Keeping sibling sets together, maintaining essential family bonds, and ensuring a smooth transition into foster care are at the core of our impact.

The Essentials Project is another cornerstone of our efforts, offering care packages to every local foster child. These packages, filled with crucial items like clothing, toiletries, pajamas, and more, aim to alleviate stress and create a sense of security for children entering their foster homes.

Our commitment extends beyond material support. Through engaging local events like Interest Nights, Foster Family Fun Days, and more, we foster a sense of community, compassion, and shared moments of joy.

Our Vision: Building Brighter Futures

Foster + Heart envisions a future where every child in foster care has the opportunity to thrive in a loving and supportive environment. Our goal is to expand our reach, touch more lives, and continue being a beacon of hope for children in need.
