Foster Care Angels Incorporated

Foster Care

There are currently almost 20,000 children in out of home care in NSW and this figure is increasing at an alarming rate.

Foster Care Angels was founded by Foster Carers who saw first hand the trauma of children first entering the Foster Care system and identified other needs that are not being met by other agencies. We are 100% volunteer run meaning your valuable gifts go directly to our programs.

What do we do? Foster care Angels provides a number of services, free of charge to 'Support Positive Placements'. These include:

Care Packages: When a child is removed from their home and placed into Foster Care, they often leave with little or no personal possessions. Through Fostering Agencies, Foster Care Angels provides a "Care Package" to the child as they transition in to the Foster Care System, giving them a sense of self-worth and independence. The Care Packages are age and gender appropriate backpacks and contain all new items such as baby needs, comfort items, toiletries, school supplies, a soft toy to snuggle with, reading or picture books and something to play with.

Computers 4 Kids: We believe every child deserves an education. Young people, particularly those living in Residential Care Facilities (RCF) can quickly become disinterested and disengaged in school without the appropriate tools, and become socially isolated from their peers. We are working to provide young people living in RCF's with laptop computers, school software and technical support so that they have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Respite For Carers: Foster Carers have a 24/7 job. They open their hearts and homes for these children, providing love, guidance and support to children with often unique and challenging needs. A weekend away and a quiet meal together may not seem like much, but sometimes, a short break can mean the difference between a placement breakdown and a family being able to continue to provide care to a child.
