The role of a foster care worker can be stressful and emotionally draining. Not only do they carry heavy caseloads and are many times viewed as the bad guy by those they serve, but they often get little to no thanks for the work they do. This leads to high levels of burnout and when a caseworker is overwhelmed, unsupported, or decides to resign, children are affected.
What if the Body of Christ reaches out to these workers to shower love and support on them? Just imagine how this would bring them hope, better job satisfaction and equip them to best serve and support children and their families!

Just wanted to let you know about our efforts to love on foster care workers. We made up baskets with breakfast goodies. It was such a pleasure to watch the receptionists’ expressions go from wary to delighted after they realized I came bearing gifts!
As one worker put it: “This is so nice – to get goodies – instead of being yelled at. Most people are not usually very happy to talk to us.”
