Without the unyielding support of our parents and volunteers, our work would not be possible.
Resource parents provide unconditional love and understanding to children in their care regardless of whether the children are born to them, adopted or in foster care. Further, resource parents provide encouragement, guidance, and safety for children until such time as they can be reunited with their birth family, become adopted, or live independently. As part of a team engaged to care for children, resource parents play a crucial role in the mental and physical well-being of the children placed in their care.
The contributions and support of ExtraordinaryFamilies volunteers are inestimable. The kindness and compassion shown by our volunteers enhances our ability to touch the lives of children in a meaningful way. We sincerely thank each of our volunteers for their generous assistance. We also thank the many corporations and foundations for their contributions in support of our work. We especially want to thank our Youth in Transition Advisory Group and Co-Mentors who give unselfishly their time and resources to help current and former youth in foster care prepare for life as adults.
