Finally, a way to support the foster care community without reinventing the wheel.

Strategic Coaching. Professional Resources. Accounting Support.

Everything you need to jump start a ministry.


Helping you support your foster care community through awareness, encouragement, and advocacy.


Do you want to help your church become more aware of foster care?


Do you want to encourage your local foster care agencies?


Are you looking for ways to lead others towards greater service instead of serving on your own?


You Can Be a Voice.

There is only so much you can do on your own. Maybe you’re a foster parent or serving the foster care community in some other way already, but you want to do more. You’ve been made aware of this community and you can’t turn away now. You know the need is overwhelming, and you want to engage other people. You believe that the foster care community needs the church and the church needs the foster care community.

If this describes you, we think the Advocate role might be a great fit! TFI Advocates are leaders who serve as volunteer representatives of The Forgotten Initiative in their areas. They believe that awareness leads to action and are passionate about helping people support the foster care community.

We are ready to equip you to be a voice for the foster care community so that you can mobilize others to serve. We want to welcome you into our family of Advocates. We want to connect you with other leaders who are working together for their individual communities. We are here for you. You don’t have to do this on your own. Together, we are better.

Want to help your church become aware of the foster care community?

We believe the Church cares deeply for the foster care community, but they don’t always know the needs or how to help. We want to help you help your church.

Awareness leads to action. Help your church become aware of the foster care community.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

The foster care community needs you and you need them.

We’re praying that not only will the foster care community be changed through your ministry but that you will be too! We think you’re great, but we truly want that for you. We want you to be drawn to Jesus in new ways. We want you to see your need for Him more clearly. Do you want that too?
