Many questions come up when you consider becoming a foster parent. We understand that. We realize that the decision to foster is big. Our Encourage team is here to walk beside you through this process and help you feel empowered. Yes, you can foster too.

We invite you to learn more about foster care with Encourage from our staff and seasoned foster parents. You’ll find out their fears and their faith in opening up their hearts and homes to youth in need of safety and security.


Join us at the Wayne County Public Library from 6:30 to 8pm for an informal and authentic conversation about foster care. Your reservation is required as Spoon Market & Deli is providing dinner for this special session.

If you have questions about this gathering, please contact Heather Huebner, Recruitment and Engagement Specialist at 330.462.1118 or huebnerh@ccho.org

Encourage Foster Care, a ministry of Christian Children’s Home of Ohio, has been helping foster parents and youth be successful in the purpose to which God is calling them since 1989.
