What is a
Care Communities provide tangible support for foster, kinship, and adoptive families to keep anyone from feeling they are in this alone. A team of volunteers from your church will wrap around a family with support such as providing meals, transportation, and childcare. Every Care Community has a team leader who will coordinate the volunteers and their services with the family.
