'I Won't Give Up on You'

For a child in foster care, it can be easy to think that the world has given up on you. They have experienced trauma that sometimes manifests in challenging behaviors that require extra love and support at a time when their biological parents are unable to provide it. These children need a resource parent with patience, someone who understands that a child’s wounds will not be fixed overnight, a parent who’s going to say, “I’m not going to give up on you.” Uplift Family Services specializes in helping these parents and children in foster care create more stable, loving homes. Uplift has its own mental health clinicians, social workers and family specialists who provide services and supports, so resource parents know they are never alone on this journey.
