Ways to Support

Even if you aren’t ready to become a foster or adoptive parent, there are many ways you can support Iowa children and families!

Raise awareness

  • Host a Four Oaks Foster and Adoptive Family Connections or LSI speaker
  • Helping to spread the word about foster care and adoption in your community
  • Volunteer at a local foster care or adoption event

Volunteer

Donate

Consider supporting foster and adoptive families and children in foster care by  donating directly to Four Oaks or LSI. Funds are used to help recruit additional foster families for Iowa children and for special projects to benefit children, families and youth. Examples include purchasing ethnic hair and skin care kits for African American or multi-racial children in Caucasian foster homes; funding scholarship opportunities; purchasing smoke detectors to help new foster families meet licensing requirements; or funding events to recruit more Latino foster families.
