Find Your Fit In Foster Care

You have gifts, personality traits, and experiences that make you who you are. The challenge is figuring out how those things might best fit into the many different pieces of the foster care system. We’ve grouped these gifts, personality traits, and experiences into 7 Faces of Foster Care Engagement. Chances are that more than one, or even several, will describe facets of who you are. You won’t fit neatly into just one. However, our hope is that by identifying your natural tendencies within each of these types, you will better understand the best ways you can plug into helping kids and families in foster care.

Travis & Amanda

We had been praying for 6 years about becoming foster parents. We were positive that this was a direction God was leading us. Through our jobs in education we have worked with several foster children which only strengthened our desire to eventually become foster parents.
