Helping Foster Children of Acadiana

Our Mission Statement

Our goal is to raise public awareness about the need for foster and adoptive families for children and to provide unexpected blessings for the foster children in the Acadiana and surrounding areas.

We are dedicated to making foster children in Acadiana feel extra special at Christmas time, for their birthday, and throughout the year.

There are about (30) children in Acadiana are in need of a “forever home”; however, there are over 3200 children in foster care currently in the state of LA; over 800 are teenagers.  There is a tremendous need for families willing to foster these teenagers!

Each year, FOSTER FRIENDS hosts a Christmas party for the foster children in the Acadiana area. With the help of donations, we are able to grant each child’s Christmas wish list, so they can experience the joy of Christmas.

Christmas Wishes

Thank you, Acadiana, for your generous donations; we were able to purchase ALL the gifts for all the children this year.


FOSTER FRIENDS also raises funds to recognize foster children on their birthdays.

We provide a gift and a sweet treat for each child on their birthday which is sometimes unseen.
