The Foster-Adopt Peer Mentor program allows one of our peer mentors to go into the homes of adopted children and help them transition into their new family.

The Foster-Adopt Peer-Mentor program was developed by and for children who are coming out of foster-care and into their adoptive homes.  Our peer mentors are young adults who who placed into adoptive homes as tweens or teens and understand the unique struggles.  In addition, our peer mentors have attended intensive specialized peer support training in booth Oregon and Idaho to become specialists and to further develop their skills.

Building connections with the kids and families are key to the success of the program.  Sometimes it happens organically, in the home, sometimes, it helps to go to a neutral location and participate in an activity they enjoy.

Help us support the program by donating any of the following items, giftcards or moneies towards activities like the following:

  • Fuzzy socks (men/women/youth/adult)
  • Hats & gloves
  • Movie passes
  • Weighted blankets
  • Gas Cards (for our peer mentors)
  • YMCA passes
  • WINCO gift cards
  • Movie passes / fandango giftcards
  • Amazon gift cards
  • Froyo gift cards
  • Michaels gift cards
  • Restaurant gift cards
  • Jump Time gift Cards
