The Neighborhood connects caring community volunteers with foster (resource) parents in need of tangible and relational support.
How to support a Foster (resource) Family:
Volunteer teams with The Neighborhood come alongside a foster (resource) family for a six-month term and provide support in these three ways:
Meals Twice a Month
Random Acts of Kindness
Relationship and Partnership
Why The Neighborhood
Long-lasting positive relationships are imperative to a child's development and sense of well-being.
65% of children in care in Oregon experience 2 or more placements. The Neighborhood aims to stabilize placements and build relational support for the entire family.
