Children learn values over time by watching and learning from adults—usually, their parents. But foster children rarely receive that guidance. Consequently, their worldview and morals can lack clarity, and they routinely struggle to find a positive purpose.

Christian Family Care’s Mentoring Program is designed to help youths in this difficult situation. We carefully match our mentors with young teen and pre-teen foster children. Meetings are one-on-one and face-to-face each month. Our hope is that deep, long-term friendships would develop between these pairs and that each youth would be encouraged by the adult’s commitment to meeting and relationship.
