Lakeshore Foster Families & Friends is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization working to support foster children and foster and kinship families by raising awareness and providing much-needed resources and support.

Mission: Empowering children and families who need us most. 

Vision: All children in out-of-home care have a loving home.

Most foster children, when removed from their homes, often lose everything that is familiar to them, including their belongings. Many of these children come only with the clothing on their backs. It is our goal to eliminate the feeling of worthlessness by helping children in any way possible. Lakeshore Foster Families & Friends step in to help the families and children in any way possible.

Our overall goal is to show love to the foster and kinship parents in our community. We believe that our programs not only benefit the children in care but the family as a whole.

Our kids deserve better. We can help. You can help.
