iFoster is a free support for foster, kinship and crossover care. We
negotiate on behalf of our community to lower the cost and accessibility of the
resources our community most needs.
iFoster is free to members of the foster care community, so
the easiest way to partner with us is to join and take advantage of our
resources and programs. We can also provide you with info cards, flyers, fact sheets, webinars and videos to provide to your beneficiaries. Call us at 1-855-936-7837 to get the materials you need.
Resources for Your Beneficiaries
Some child welfare partners are taking advantage of specific
iFoster programs such as: our computer program that provides low-cost
refurbished laptops with donated full versions of Microsoft Windows &
Office; ReadingPlus to bring students up to grade level in reading,
CareerCruising to assess youth aptitudes and career paths; Sight For Students
to receive free annual eye exams and glasses; and many, many more. Partners even incorporate iFoster resources into their own existing programs such as: foster parent trainings, kinship support groups, ILP classes, transition planning, and job readiness training for our transition-age youth.
