Hope Within a Broken System - documentary released.

Honoring past trauma, acknowledging present pain, and challenging the future of culturally relevant experiences for Black and Indigenous children in foster care is what our newest video project is all about.

Seeing how the System has failed the Black and Indigenous people it seeks to serve is the first step in creating a better future for our children. At Fosterful, we are hopeful that through honest discussion and determination we can help pave the way for a child welfare system that serves all children well.

Now Open: Lewiston, Idaho

Fosterful has officially arrived in Lewiston, Idaho!

Our Executive Director, Sarah, recently spent the weekend at the Lewiston DHW office, setting up a nurturing environment for children coming into the office. This room is where our Lewiston volunteers will spend their time with kiddos.

Speaking of our amazing volunteers, Sarah was able to host an in-person volunteer training for those interested in the Lewiston area, and the turnout was amazing! We're so hopeful for what's ahead for our Lewiston office program.

Special thank you to Sylvan Furniture, Model Home Furnishings, DZ Designs, Hells Canyon Painting, and Columbia Paint and Coatings for the generous in-kind donations of furniture, decorations, and paint needed to make this room refresh happen. And to our amazing community partners, Crosspoint Church, New Ground Alliance and the DHW staff, we couldn't do this without you!

Full Steam Ahead

This month, the Fosterful board and staff got away for a weekend of professional development, team building and strategic planning.

Special thank you to the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust for sponsoring this retreat - we were so thankful to be able to dedicate time to strategic planning and personal growth.

Thank you to Riff Creative for their help and expertise, and Menucha Retreat Center for being so accommodating during our stay! We highly recommend them.

We can't wait for what's ahead here at Fosterful, and we're so happy you're on the journey with us.
