QDR Christmas Wish

Help our North Carolina Foster Children find homes!

Christmas is a time where wishes should come true. This year, our wish is to find permanent homes for the more than 11,000 NC foster children looking for a home and a family to call their own. We need your help!

Ready to take the next step?

    

31% of people consider becoming foster parents, while only 3% follow through and become licensed foster parents. If you've ever considered becoming a foster or adoptive parent, it's time to take the next step - Learn more about becoming a foster parent, or attend an informational meeting.

Hey QDR - I really want to help, but being a Foster/Adoptive Parent isn't right for me.

That's ok! We know that most people won't be able to take a child in, but that doesn't me you can't help.

You may not be ready to foster/adopt, but you could help those who are. Agape of N.C. is looking for people who would want to provide babysitting and weekend relief to full-time foster parents. Use this contact form to express your interest.
