Foster Care

The Sacred Heart Foster Care ministry is devoted to exemplifying Christ’s love and mercy to positively impact children and teenagers who find themselves in the foster care system – whether through substance abuse, domestic violence, or neglect. Members develop supportive relationships with their mentees in an effort to improve a child’s feelings of self-worth and optimism for the future.

Do you love working with children and teens? If being a mentor is something that has always interested you, or you love building encouraging and supportive relationships with others, the Foster Care ministry would love to have you join us.

  • Time Commitment:  Twice a month for activities and as meetings are scheduled.
  • Responsibilities:  Varies but could include meeting with your mentee, planning experiential opportunities for them, encouraging them to pursue their goals, or assisting with administrative support.
  • Training:  Training is provided for anyone who is interested in working with foster children. Ministry members must also complete the following: a volunteer application with Eckerd Connects, a background check with fingerprinting, and complete Safe Environment Training.
