30% of children in foster care are separated from their siblings

70% of children in foster care are part of a sibling group

In Spring 2021, Embrace expanded our services and facility to provide an array of new programs for neglected and abused children and teens in our community. The space is comprised of two adjoining rooms, outfitted as a playroom and kitchenette. While primarily functioning as a space to reunite siblings separated in foster care for visitation, the rooms will also be utilized support groups and workshops. This sensory-friendly space provides the safety and privacy needed to nurture priceless relationships between brothers and sisters in the midst of unspeakable trauma. A place of calm and connection.

Sibling Visits

Reuniting brothers and sister separated in foster care for a time of play and reconnection.

Life Skill Classes

Preparing teens “aging-out” of foster care to transition successfully into independent, adult life.

Children's Support Groups

Counselor-led small groups normalize the foster care and adoption journey for teens and tweens.

Workshops

Fun, topical workshops for children in foster, adoptive, or kinship care.
