What we do

Child Bridge finds and equips foster and adoptive families for children who have suffered abuse and neglect.

We advocate for children who have suffered trauma by creating awareness of the crisis and educating potential foster families on how to get started.

Community is an essential part of walking this road. We build connection into everything we do, so you will always have people walking alongside you.

Community & Relationships

Refocus

Want to connect and dive deeper with other families?

Foster care can be hard, and there will be moments or days when you feel like you’re in over your head. That’s normal, and it’s why community is such an essential part of the process. We build connection into everything we do, leading small groups for facilitated, outcome-driven discussion. No matter where you are in your journey, we will connect you with the support you need. We also create space for you to share your experiences to help others, creating deeper relationships and a system of support.
