What’s a Support Team?

Your Support Team is a group of friends and/or family members that are willing to commit to supporting you during your foster or adoptive journey. The support you receive from your Support Team can make the difference between a thriving family and disheartening isolation.

Project 1.27 families are required to bring at least four Support Team Members to Support Team Training before approaching their county/agency for certification.

"Support Team training is Brilliant! I wish I had this information and support when my wife and I adopted our little girl.”
~An Adoptive Dad after attending Support Team Training

A Support Team member commits to:

  • Become educated about the foster care/adoption journey by participating in  Support Team Training and utilizing the monthly Support Team Emails.
  • Spend time with your family and children.
  • Pray for your family.
  • Assist with practical needs like short-term respite care, transportation, meals, house cleaning, yard work, etc.

Develop your Support Team now! Invite your Support Team members to attend training, or forward a Monthly Support Team Newsletter to a friend.

Though one may be overpowered,
