Living Into Our Name

The word “Encourage” means “to give support, confidence and hope.” We feel this name beautifully illustrates why we do what we do as we seek to encourage each foster parent and child by helping them realize that they are a unique creation who carries immeasurable worth to our Creator. We are intentional with the message of providing encouragement so that every foster parent and youth is successful in the purpose to which God is calling them, and we take the time to help our foster parents determine the characteristics of kids that will best fit in their homes.

We exist to connect foster and adoptive families with strong support systems that will equip them with the physical, emotional and logistical help they need when opening their hearts and homes.
