THE FOSTER CARE COMMUNITy
When Ed and Martha first heard about the Love Box program, they were a bit nervous (who isn't?!) because it was something completely new. But once they met with their family for the first time "it was wonderful." Ed shares, "It's the relationships that stand out and mainly motivate us, I think. It establishes something that you're always going to do each month, and it's consistent.”
Each month, Ed and Martha go visit their Love Box family to show any type of support they can - whether that's bringing them essential items, toys for the kids, or providing a listening ear. Ed and Martha are showing consistent support.
We believe that when children and youth experiencing foster care are matched with committed volunteers who continuously show up for them and their caregivers, their sense of purpose and belonging begins to increase, and they are able to begin to dream BIGGER about all that they can become.
