Needs and Activities

Become a Foster Care Champion in your church. Lay leaders with a passion for foster care/adoption are needed to inspire, recruit and resource new and current foster parents.

Support foster/adopt/crisis care families. Spokane127 teaches churches how to develop support teams so that foster families are assisted by other families who provide transportation, re­spite care, child care, home repairs and assistance in many other ways. Including prayer!

Quarterly networking lunches. Connect with other foster families.

Foster Family Rec Night. A few nights a year SpoFI rents a recreation facility for foster families.
