Tidewater Friends of Foster Care believes every child deserves the opportunity to thrive. Our initiatives are aimed at ensuring that children in the foster care system have the best childhoods possible. Due to instability in family environment, foster children often miss out on key elements of a healthy and happy childhood, such as consistent family routines, enrollment in a single school system, and participation in extracurricular activities. Consequently, these children struggle emotionally and academically, with outcomes that reflect this strife. We are here to change that.

The GOALS of Tidewater Friends of Foster Care is to improve foster care outcomes through:

  1. To ensure every child has a loving family placement capable of meeting their emotional, physical and psychological needs – through targeted outreach and training initiatives for foster parents.

  3. To improve long-term outcomes of youth involved in the foster care system – through steadfast and strategic investment in enrichment programs that bridge gaps between publicly available resources and those elements essential to a healthy, happy and rewarding childhood.
