Foster Parent Recruitment. Sometimes foster children move and are split from their siblings due to the shortage of foster homes. By recruiting more quality foster homes, foster children will have a better chance of permanence if the cannot return home.
Activities and programs for foster parents and children. Building Blocks conducts monthly activities for foster families to help them be more involved in the community. Foster Parents and children benefit by meeting new people and forming a support group of people just like them.
Respite services. Like any other family, foster families sometimes need a break from their children. They don't always have access to a skilled daycare provider or grandparent to provide the care. Building Blocks provides training respite care providers to care for these children.
