We all benefit with a little help from our friends!
The members of foster care support groups are people just like you who have opened their homes to care for children. Foster Caregiver Support groups are made up of like-minded individuals who share real-life information with each other and who provide support to each other when it is needed.
Support groups are membership organizations where members share with each other – their joys and the difficulties – for mutual benefit. Support groups usually hold monthly meetings, arrange for free training (and often provide sitters), and provide opportunities for members to help each other between meetings.
