You don’t have to be a foster parent to make an impact in the life of a foster child. With our Foster Crew model, it’s simple — if you can cook, mow the lawn, play with kids or pray, you can make a world of difference for foster families and foster children in your community!

What is a Foster Crew?

A Foster Crew is a ministry of a local church partnering with One More Child to mobilize church members to walk alongside foster families on their adventures. We train you and walk alongside you to share what we have learned through decades of caring for foster families We help you get volunteers mobilized to provide foster families with necessities as well as the support an encouragement they desperately need to do what God has called them to!

Why start a Foster Crew?

Why start a Foster Crew?

The need is astounding
In the U.S. there are more than 430,000 children in foster care. At One More Child, we’ve been serving children in foster care for decades, and we believe the best place for every child is a loving, Christian home.

It’s a simple way to have a profound impact
If you love to cook you can provide foster families with food, if you own a car mechanic shop you can offer free oil changes, if you’re a laundry folding aficionado, have at it! We’ll help connect the dots and provide you with resources to get started.

Foster parents need help, but don’t always ask
Foster parents provide physical, emotional and spiritual support for children and teens who have been separated from the people they love the most. Foster parents are responsible for everything from attending court dates to going to counseling visits to visitations with parents and relatives to making difficult decisions about what’s in the best interest of children in their care and their family.

Why partner with One More Child?

We will provide you with ongoing resources, including:

• Access to webinars, trainings and other resources
• Beneficial strategies to connect with and stay connected to local foster families
• A starter box that includes books, ministry helpers, Foster Crew shirts and more
• A personalized Foster Crew Facebook group and guide to make communication simple
