Foster Cares, Inc. - Our primary mission is to provide, for free, cost and time-saving benefits to foster parents and other foster care providers.
Currently, there is no such offering for the well over one million adults in America who are directly responsible for taking care of one or more of the over half a million children currently in foster care. Foster Cares feels strongly that these good people deserve to have a system in place which rewards them for their kind efforts with these foster children.
When the website is taken live Foster Cares will begin to offer these benefits, at no cost, to foster caretakers. Foster Cares has already been working for some time now on acquiring these cost and time saving benefits to offer to our nation’s foster caretakers.
Benefits Like What?
Listed are some examples of the types of benefits which we are working on having offered to foster parents and other caretakers involved in the foster care system.
Discounts at retailers (clothing, supermarkets)
Shopping club membership discounts
Rewards or cashback on commodities (food, formula, gas, etc...)
Discounts on computers and internet related items
Powerful online (free) tools specifically designed to help foster parents manage their daily lives
The possibilities are endless. The reason we are asking for donations is to hire a full-time staff to work solely on creating and offering these benefits and many more.
In the long run Foster Cares also seeks to provide tools for foster agencies and group homes to use in their daily operations. Tools created specifically to save operational time and reduce budgets.
Another constant focus of Foster Cares is working towards creating awareness, campaigns and maintaining an operational direction in order to help change negative misconceptions in regards to foster parenting. Thus making recruiting new, potentially very good, foster parents easier for foster agencies and foster system in general.
