Support groups in Whatcom and Skagit Counties for
Foster, Adoptive and Relative Caregivers

As a community, we strive to give children who were abused and uprooted a sense of belonging and an opportunity to heal and provide foster parents with the support they need to continue the crucial and caring work they do every day. The following groups are open to those interested in relative care, foster care and/or adoption. Please contact the group's facilitator before attending, as dates and locations are subject to change.
