The Sheridan Foster Parent Exchange was founded by Carla Trier and her 8 year old foster daughter in March of 2013. A foster kid and foster parent herself, Carla saw the need to have supplies right away to welcome a child into their new surroundings. A trash bag or just the clothes on their back are far from a way to let the healing begin. We assist foster children and parents with the difficulties surrounding foster Care. The Sheridan Foster Parent Exchange serves foster, adoptive, and kinship parents and children on the intricate and volatile journey of foster care. So who do we help at the Sheridan Foster Parent Exchange ? We help foster parents as they get new kiddos, we help foster parents who have adopted their foster children, we help parents who are reunifying with their child in foster care, we help adults who were foster children and are now parents, we help families who struggle after reunification, and we help grandparents who are guardians or parents to their grandchildren.
- Resource Connection
- Youth Mentoring
- Private On-Line Foster Parent Group
We provide and deliver care kits for children going into foster care to support them as they make this transition. It is our goal to let children know that they are not the trash bag of stained clothes they usually start their foster care journey with. We want them to know that there are people in their own community that care for them even though they don't know them. We provide 7 days worth of clothing and other important essentials. Foster children can come shopping at our foster kid store on their birthday or to celebrate an adoption.
- Kits to children entering foster care
