Our Story

Established in 2016, we envision ourselves to be an organization that promotes health and wellness among Alabama’s foster youth by promoting meaningful participation in social, community, home, and school environments.

Trauma-Informed Social Skills Groups

Foster the Future Alabama is currently implementing monthly trauma-informed social skills groups for children. During these groups we use life value terms from the Trust Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) teachings to educate the children on how to have healthy relationships. We help them engage in activities that strengthen their interoception and body awareness skills so that they may identify and begin to understand their emotions. These groups take place every 3rd Tuesday of the month at the Shelby County Foster Parent Association.

Partnership with the University of Alabama

Occupational therapy students at the University of Alabama (UAB) volunteer for Foster the Future Alabama. Through this partnership, the students are trained in trauma and how early adversity affects vulnerable populations. The students are then able to apply that training as they assist with monthly groups for children in foster care.

Our Mission

Our mission is to identify and allow provision for appropriate and quality services and opportunities that would otherwise be unavailable to children currently or previously in foster care. Foster the Future Alabama seeks to provide opportunities that enable children in Alabama's foster system to meet their fullest potential in home, school, and community settings.

Foster the Future Alabama is currently seeking donations to support our monthly trauma informed social skills groups. We are also working on developing a curriculum for trauma informed social skills groups so that other organizations will be able to implement a year-long curriculum to facilitate their own social skills groups.
