Giving Levels

$250 Therapeutic Support

Foster Village staff includes seasoned social workers, Child Development experts, Behavioral Health specialists, and experienced foster and adoptive parents. They have an immense amount of knowledge and tools that they are sharing with caregivers on a daily basis to help children heal from trauma. All of their therapeutic support services are free to foster families, kinship caregivers, and biological parents of kids in foster care. $250 covers the costs of these professional services that typically aren’t accessible for the most at-risk families.

$500 Critical Necessities

Over $6.5 Million in critical support provided since 2016. Every day families come to Foster Village’s resource centers to get new beds, car seats, clothing, and all of the basics for kids who were placed in their homes with just the clothes on their backs. The average Welcome Pack provided for each child is $500-$1000 worth of basic needs. This is the entry point for families to then receive holistic wraparound support from Foster Village until each child reaches family permanency.

$1,000 A Village in Every Community

Foster Village currently has 10 locations nationwide with 4 more positioned to launch in the next 6 months. The team here in Austin has created an incredible franchise model and technology for other communities to effectively replicate this mission. $1000 helps cover the training costs that go into getting a new location off the ground. We hope to see the Foster Village mission reach every community.

$2,500 Restoring Families

Through their Partners in Permanency program they’ve helped over 500 families safely reunify since 2016. Parents are equipped with proven tools and strategies, foster parents are trained on how to serve as an extension of family, and financial barriers like housing, transportation, and job training are bridged through these funds. This is the only program of its kind and setting a new standard for how we approach foster care.

$5,000 From Placement to Permanency

Your donation ensures that all of their basic and therapeutic needs are met from the time they’re placed in a new home until they reach permanency through reunification or adoption. Foster Village’s goal is to break generational cycles of adversity by giving children and families the access they need to beat the odds.
