Charity Information

Foster the Family DC provides immediate emergency support and long-term holistic care to foster families and children in the DMV area. Our dedicated staff and team of committed volunteers deliver practical necessities to the doorstep of a foster family immediately after the placement of a child in the home. Our Foster Care Packages provide everything the child needs, from pajamas and clothing to hygiene necessities and comfort items, as well as a meal for the entire family.

Along with meeting practical needs, we provide wraparound care to the foster parents and family through community, education, and special events. With a growing network of families, our team works tirelessly to bring local foster families the support they need and deserve.
