FAITHBRIDGE FOSTER CARE**

FaithBridge Foster Care partners with local churches and communities to create foster care ministries that address their local foster care problem. We work with the church to manage all aspects of the ministry including training, certification and ongoing operational support. In addition, partners with government agencies, aiming to reduce the administrative burden on our foster families. Most importantly, we create within the church a small group network, known as the FaithBridge Community of Care(SM), which provides unparalleled resources and support to foster families and children.  VISIT SITE  (Champion Level Sponsor)

DAVE THOMAS FOUNDATION FOR ADOPTION

At the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, we believe that we have a responsibility to be the voice of foster care adoption, so that every child finds a family. We exist to find homes for children who are waiting to be adopted from foster care in North America. In the process, we work to inform adults who may have misperceptions about foster care adoption that keep them from getting involved. Through the money we raise, we are able to provide free educational resources, promote awareness, assist policymakers and employers, and support adoption professionals and agencies throughout the United States and Canada to ensure that every child finds a forever home. VISIT SITE  (Champion Level Sponsor)
