Foster A Child Change The Future

With over 400 children in the Gaston County foster care system right now, the need for safe and caring homes is at an all time high. By choosing to become a foster parent and opening your home to a child in need, you have the opportunity to change the trajectory of their future.

Did you know that only about 54% of children in foster care graduate from high school? Although foster homes are often temporary environments, the stability and security they can provide at a time of uncertainty makes a world of difference in these children's lives. Having a safe place where their needs are met can help these children and teens thrive in a way that they may not have otherwise been able to. You can be the bridge to their brighter future.
