Foster parents come at this work with hope and desire to make the life of a child better.  FPAWS wants to meet caregivers and families where they are and help in any way we can.”  Tracy talked about the many services FPAWS provides to foster families, and highlighted that Silverdale Rotary’s $1,000 grant will fund 400 hours of online education for foster families, a much needed support service.
