BECOME A BUDDY FAMILY
Have you every wanted to get to know a foster child and become a part of their lives? Synergy Foster is excited to introduce the Family buddy program!
*Please only consider this program if you can commit to a long term, healthy and supportive relationship with a teen.
Requirements and Info:
Adults in the family must be able to pass a background check, be over the age of 21 and commit to Synergy's code of conduct
Families must commit to a long term relationship with a teen. These kids have had a lot of people come in and out of their lives. We're looking for long term, committed families that can provide a stable family base. If committed, you could have a relationship with this teen for life!
Your family role will be to visit the teen while at his/her current placement on a weekly basis. Currently we only offer this program in Cache Valley for teen boys. Visits may consist of playing board games, bringing snacks or meals to share with the teen, doing a craft, etc.
We need to get to know your family in order to match you with a teen that has similar interests. We will send you a survey that we'd like your family to fill out. Our therapists will carefully review the results. Please only serious, committed inquiries.
This program is a volunteer program. There will be supervision at visits to ensure safety.
