Foster Care Volunteer Opportunity

Foster Care Volunteer Opportunity

Not everyone can be a foster parent, but everyone can support children & families experiencing foster care!

Morning Star is excited to partner with the local non-profit Salem Angels to provide community and support to foster families so they can continue the important and meaningful work they are doing. Do YOU have a heart to support and bless kids and families experiencing foster care?  

Through the Love Box program, a group of volunteers from Morning Star will be matched to a local foster family to provide monthly connection. We need volunteers with different skills, availability, and strengths! Some roles will be primarily providing financial support, others will be donating time, and still others will be about building a relationship with the families.  

If you would like to make a difference in this area of great need, please contact Jen Tompkins as soon as possible at jen@mstar.church.

WHAT IS THE LOVE BOX PROGRAM?

Love Box program provides foster families with community and holistic support so that they can continue to do the important and meaningful work of being a foster parent. As a Love Box group, volunteers will be matched with a local foster family based on compatibility and scope of needs.  When our families are matched with committed volunteers who show up monthly, parents feel more supported and children gain a greater sense of belonging and self-confidence. This program requires a one year commitment.

Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best they can possibly be.
