About Foster the Bay
Foster the Bay was born in 2015 when a Social Worker challenged Bay Area churches to mobilize "a faith alliance.” This alliance would partner local churches with their county agencies to address a growing crisis in the foster care system. The Church responded with a resounding yes. In the ensuing years, Foster the Bay has brought nearly 50 churches together in partnership, and 95 families have stepped forward to care for vulnerable children. We’ve seen evidence of the Church’s passion for children and families manifest as 250 individuals and families have surrounded foster families with love and care. So far, we’ve seen more than 100 children placed in loving, supportive homes. Together, we're moving towards a day when the lists of children waiting for a home will be replaced with lists of families willing to open their hearts.
