In East Texas there are over 2,000 children in foster care.  Yet there are less than 600 foster families.

Together We Can Be The Light

Want to learn how you can Be the Light?

Join us to learn about finding your fit in foster care.  You will learn about the different areas you can serve children and families, such as fostering, adopting, babysitting, wrapping around foster families, advocating for children in care, and so much more.

What Is The Fostering Collective?

The Fostering Collective was started with one goal in mind, helping you change the lives of children in need. Our staff and board, foster and adoptive families ourselves, struggled with the complexity of the system when trying to get started. We faced some of the same questions you do. Now we are partnering with 40+ churches, agencies, organizations, and businesses to help you Be the Light for a child in foster care.
