The Foster Care Prayer Guide

One of the easiest ways to get involved and support the stories of children in foster care is to commit to pray for them. Use this Foster Care Prayer Guide to lift up children in hard places and the families, friends, professionals that support them.

New Placement Template for Child in Care

Use this template each time a child comes in care. One Template per child. Upon placement, copy the “New Placement” section into an email and fill it out. At the end of each month, reply to all on the original email sent, and provide an update using the “Monthly Update” template. This keeps all parties on the same page and keeps a running document for reference.
