Southwest Indiana Foster Care Team

We are a working collaborative of four distinct nonprofits with separate governing boards, missions, and objectives, but we all share a passion for serving kids and families in Indiana’s foster care system. We work together on projects that leverage our respective strengths and resources to improve outcomes for Indiana’s children and youth.


Open your eyes.

Over 500 children in Southwest Indiana are in out-of-home foster care waiting for a family to care for them.


Open your mind.

Over 40 percent of the time those children have to be placed outside of the county they call home. 


Open your heart.

Our community needs you to OPEN your heart to the possibility of becoming a foster family.


Open your arms.

Our kids need homes. Getting involved can make a difference and could change a life. Maybe even yours. 

What can you do? Open your schedule:
