Tangible Support Resources from FosterAdopt Connect

Parenting children who have experienced trauma is difficult, especially if support isn’t at hand. Our goal is to support families in their work in tangible ways so that more children can experience a child free of abuse and neglect.

Family Support Resources Offered by FosterAdopt Connect

Respite Care

Respite care gives foster, adoptive, and kinship parents and children the chance to have short, regular periods of time apart in which they can rest and recharge.

Give Joy Holidays

Give joy this holiday to your kids! Complete your children’s wishlist and generous donors come alongside your family with a little extra support as you do the difficult work of parenting children who have experienced trauma.

Lawyers for Kids

The attorneys at Shook, Hardy & Bacon created the Lawyers for Kids fund to provide small grants to cover expenses associated with youth development activities for Jackson County foster and adopted kids.


The JCFAP loop (The Loop), operated independently of FosterAdopt Connect, but strongly supported by FosterAdopt Connect,
provides convenient and immediate support to busy families.
