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.

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.
