Come and learn more about Better Together and becoming a Family Care Advocate from the comfort of your own home!
A Family Care Advocate serves as a liaison between the birth parents and the Host Family, ensuring that children have everything they need to feel safe and loved during the hosting experience. Advocates help parents get back on track and ready to resume caring for their kids. Advocates meet with parents weekly either in person or virtually to help them connect with resources and work through their short term crisis. As an advocate, you have an incredible opportunity to help strengthen parents and keep children out of the foster care system. The average hosting is 41 days, and a volunteer will spend an average of 3-4 hours a week working with parents.
If you are interested in moving forward as a volunteer, the second hour of the training is required.
