Building a Village for Families
Founded in 2017, Families Together (formerly Foster Together) connects families who feel isolated with volunteer “Neighbors” who want to prove they’re not alone.
Neighbors delivers meals, groceries, or care packages to one specific family for six months, building a friendship through encouraging notes and phone calls.
