Our Services

We were created to be a support to our local foster/adoptive homes in Gwinnett County. Our group is run by volunteers who are also foster or adoptive parents, so we understand the needs you have. One of our goals is to provide information about child welfare issues that impact all of us in the group. 


Fostering and adopting can be an unknown world. Together we help each other find solutions to the many challenges and problems that parents face as they help care for Gwinnett County’s abused and neglected children.


 As a larger group we are able to better advocate for adoption and foster care issues within the County and State. We promote community awareness of the issues and needs impacting foster and adoptive care.
