The Program strives to help support the physical and emotional needs of children in foster care and families sorrounding them through connecting the communities of Catawba, Caldwell, and Burke counties. Often that support includes meeting physical needs like providing diapers, winter coats, car seats, or books and school supplies. Sometimes it means recruiting new resource families or taking meals to foster family homes. Fostering Hope also offers emotional support by providing Family Support Groups for foster families, Social Worker Appreciation Events, Parents' Day Out, and so much more. At Bethany United Church of Christ, we are grateful to join in ministry of Fostering Hope Catawba Velley.
