Be a catalyst for change in your community.

Where Do I Start?

Below are practical steps you can take to care for the forgotten in your community.
Find a TFI Advocate

Share your strengths, life experiences, and resources with those who need your support. Connect with the TFI Advocate in your area to find out how.

Become a TFI Advocate

Bring TFI to your area and become a voice for agency workers, foster parents, vulnerable adults, and children. Mobilize others to support the foster care community.

Give Financially

TFI is supported by donors like you! Your gift moves us closer to seeing people everywhere supporting the foster care community and experiencing Jesus together.


Pray for wisdom and direction. Pray for the foster care community. Pray for the Church. Pray for the foster care ministries serving in your community and across the nation!

Make others aware. Find your favorite foster care ministries on social media and share their posts! We’d love to have you join us on Facebook and Instagram.

Listen and subscribe to The Forgotten Podcast and other foster care podcasts and share episodes with your friends.

Contact your local foster care agency and learn their needs and/or volunteer opportunities.

Research whether there are other foster care ministries in your area and find out how you can volunteer with them.

Make meals or send gift cards and notes of encouragement periodically to a foster family in your area. Let them know you are here for them.

"As a caseworker, TFI has shown me hope that there are people in our community who want to defend the fatherless and voices that cannot be heard."

Our county currently has the lowest number of children in care in recent years, and the highest number of resource families available to serve them. Our agency credits TFI and our collaborating ministry with serving our families, thus allowing them to be sustained in their roles. Our agency also recognizes the community we have worked to develop; foster families are supporting each other and being supported by the Church.

"We were looking for opportunities to give back to our community a piece of what we have gotten from the Lord. Surprisingly, it was difficult to find opportunities for a large group Iike ours. When we got connected with the Forgotten Initiative, they connected us with organizations that needed what we could provide.
