You are not alone.
There is a network of support ready to help.
The TFG Network
Our Together for Good team includes trained volunteers and professional staff who come alongside parents facing chronic stress or crisis. We seek to meet the relational and practical needs of both parents and children, so that families are strengthened.
LEARN MORE ABOUT US
Temporary hosting of vulnerable children to give parents a safe option during crisis. These hostings range from one day to one year.
SUPPORTIVE RESPITE CARE
Respite care of children for parents experiencing high amounts of stress or a crisis. These hostings are typically a few hours weekly or one weekend per month.
Parent advocates connect with participating parents to share hope through being a friend. Parent advocates support in ways such as bringing over meals or helping with job applications, all while listening and encouraging.
Organized by the church, this includes helping meet the needs of participant families, such as transportation or school supplies. It also includes support for host families, such as meals or babysitting.
What We Offer
Child Safety is Our
All of our volunteers complete a comprehensive screening process including an extensive application, background check, references, interview, and home assessment visit by our social work team. Host families are also supervised and supported by our professional staff while caring for children.
Process of Care
To receive care at one of our sites, please call the state specific intake phone number or fill out an interest form (both at the top of this page). Please note, if you are a professional reaching out on behalf of a client, please call the number of the specific site you are requesting care from together with your client during TFG’s regular business hours or have your client call us directly. We cannot arrange care on behalf of someone, we must speak with the parent requesting care directly.
We typically need 24-48 hours to set up emergency care.
