There are over 500,000 children in foster care across the United States.

You can be part of the solution.

Join It Takes A Village, a digital community of foster care supporters dedicated to making a difference.


It Takes A Village is a digital community where you can:

  • Ask questions
  • Learn about foster care
  • Connect with other people who care
  • Offer a helping hand to current foster parents in your community who may need a little extra support this week.

It Takes A Village (ITAV) is a community initiative by Tidewater Friends of Foster Care, a 501c3 nonprofit in Hampton Roads, Virginia with the intention of bringing more people into the supportive bubble that takes care of our nation’s most vulnerable children.

ITAV is here to connect, inspire, and educate people to become more involved, create opportunities to support foster parents, and do what we can as a community to pitch in and help out.

“Just met the founder and heard some of her story last week during my Fostering class…what a giving and inspirational person! Love this charity and what they do for foster kids and parents is simply amazing! Thanks for all that you do!” Jessica Krall

“They literally are ‘the change they want to see in this world.’ Excellent!” Roxie Hoven

The Foster Care System needs more people who CARE.
