Fostering Together is a large nonprofit that aims to ensure safe, loving foster families are available to meet the diverse needs of abused and neglected youth. They strive to increase the number of foster families across Western Washington, help families with the licensing process, and provide free, ongoing support in a variety of ways to families caring for foster children.

How are we serving?

Foster parents often receive children in the middle of the day or night and they come with no supplies, clothing or items including diapers. This can be especially challenging for those families taking babies and toddlers who require diapers and maybe do not have the correct size on hand. When a child is placed it can be very busy and overwhelming for the foster family with what is required that first week of placement. Fostering Together would like to be able to provide that 1st box of diapers to help ease the load and save the family from having to rush out to the store. Any sizes infant to toddler are helpful including Pull-Ups.

Who do you contact?

To set up a time to drop off the collected diapers, contact Shala Crow at 360-220-3785 or shalacrow@olivecrest.org. Think about maybe signing a card as a group thanking the folks at Fostering Together for the hard, meaningful work they do every day on behalf of foster kids and families!

If you need help in the process, Wendy at CTK is available (wendyp@ctk.church or 360-733-1337 ext 212) Please share your project with us by using the hashtag #CTKserves on social media!

At CTK, we value authenticity, simplicity, empowerment, relationship, and caring about the community we live in. One key way we serve is by empowering small groups to make a difference through our local partners who address important issues for those in the hardest life circumstances. The opportunity below is a chance to tangibly demonstrate God's care, compassion, and love for those around us. As your church, we hope this makes it easy for you to put the Great Commandment to love your neighbor as yourself into action
