About

More about

Together We Foster

Together We Foster was previously known as Greene County Foster Parents Association. Upon expanding to other counties, we decided a name change was needed to be more inclusive of the areas we serve. We now serve the foster care community of Northeast Arkansas.

Our mission is to support and encourage each individual in the foster care reunification process. This includes the foster child AND their biological family, the foster parents, and families with open Protective Service Cases with the local Department of Human Services. We advocate for and bring awareness to the needs of these groups so they are surrounded with support and can successfully fulfill their purpose.

Together We Foster has a heavy presence in Greene, Craighead, Clay, Lawrence, Randolph, and Poinsett Counties. We are beginning our expansion to serve St.Francis, Lee, and Monroe Counties. Our resources are accessible to all Foster Families and Child Welfare staff, as well as the families they serve.
