Fostering Together’s goal is to see all foster families and the children they foster receive extended family-style support. To accomplish this, they facilitate the development of a Community of Care for every foster family who is approved with a Fostering Together partner organization. This is a ministry developed and supported by Northpoint Church in Alpharetta, GA. SAFFT is proud to be partnered in their efforts to accomplish their mission.
