As a foster parent, you will undergo the unavoidable effects of entering into the suffering of others.
Opening your home, heart, and life to a child who comes from trauma or adverse circumstances is one of sacrifice and intentionality. To care well for these children, you must care for yourself. We’re here to provide support, training, and resources that will help you learn the signs of compassion fatigue, burn out, and secondary trauma, while offering practical tools to ensure you can continue to help those in your care heal without crumbling yourself.
