Child Welfare Professionals
The member churches and organizations of the CAFO National Foster Care Initiative are grateful for you and the work you do! Here are just a few resources and opportunities that you may find helpful and encouraging as you faithfully speak up for kids and families.
Our weekly Foster Roster e-newsletter is short and sweet and filled with articles, videos, blog posts and other practical tools for leaders like you. Here’s what a few leaders and professionals have to say about it:
“It's so full of helpful wisdom on how to help grow the foster care movement & help those in foster care as well as a great link to resources & inspirational stories. Thank you! I will continue to forward this on to many.”

“The Foster Roster helps keep our organization informed of others who believe in and are fighting for the same cause….making a difference in the lives of foster children.”
