A supportive, friendly group for any parents of foster children to build relationships with each other. We value the selfless sacrifice that foster parents give to children that are not their own. We meet to share a cuppa, chat and support one another through life, discuss relevant life issues, minister to one another and pray. There is no child-minding available, but children are welcome with supervision.
