I want to support Foster Parents

Foster parents need all the support they can get. Would you consider supporting a foster family in one or more of the ways listed below?

Foster Parent Licensing Package

Crossnore School & Children’s Home offers FREE pre-service training to foster parents who want to become licensed foster homes. That means the cost of this training is paid for by donations. Pre-service training costs $200, which covers all materials and licensing expenses for one family.

If you are unable to foster a child yourself, what other ways can you help?

  • Mow the yard for a foster family
  • Offer free haircuts, if you’re a stylist, or purchase gift certificates for haircuts
  • Wash a foster parents car or take it for an oil change
  • Donate tickets to the zoo, the movies, or other family event

What skills do you have that could help one or more foster families?

  • Hair stylist
  • Art teacher
  • HVAC service
  • Home repair/improvement projects
  • Music lessons
  • Tutoring
  • Tax preparation for students in foster care and for foster families
