Our Story

Finding families for children in foster care in what we do at Care2Foster™. As an initiative of Fostering Great Ideas®, we are committed to improving the lives of children as they struggle in foster care. Our focus is to do this by finding more families so that every child can live with a family while he or she is in foster care.

It started as a blog for current foster parents and former children in foster care to have a platform to share their stories, and has evolved into an information source for people in the community to learn about foster care and the need for more foster parents in South Carolina. Check out the latest numbers of children in foster care, upcoming foster care events, and our recent blog posts.

Our team now consists of several volunteer staff members and local professional photographers. We are always looking to add to our team. If you are interested in offering your skills, please reach out to us. We would love to hear from you!
