We’re honored that KidsPeace Foster Care has been chosen as Best Local Non-Profit Organization in the 2017 “Best of Fayetteville” by Up and Coming Weekly. In announcing the award, the publication noted that foster care agencies are charged with finding families to care for children who are coming from difficult circumstances…
“KidsPeace educates potential foster families about the traumas these children sometimes face and teaches them how to best care for the children. It includes hosting and conducting workshops about relevant but sometimes uncomfortable topics like human trafficking, bullying and abuse. It involves fun things, too – like hosting the annual KidsPeace Chair-ity Auction, which helps fund its work: helping families heal and watching children flourish in the right loving environment…”
Thanks to Up and Coming Weekly for this honor!
Fayetteville had their yearly foster care month celebration on May 27th. As with the rest of the year, we wanted to let the families know how much they mean to us and our kids in care. We had a field day, complete with an obstacle course, 3 legged race, and tug of war. When everyone was all worn out and hungry, we had lunch from the local Cape Beard “Pig Pickin’ for Autism” benefit (BBQ pork, baked beans, cole slaw and cake – delicious!). We ended the day with Model of Care awards and thank-you gifts handed out to parents and staff. Thanks to everyone who helped make this celebration special!

We will be holding information sessions in early January for anyone interested in learning more about foster care and becoming a foster parent with us. The sessions will be held on January 3, 4th and 5th from 6-8 pm at our Fayetteville office. We are asking anyone who plans to come to choose one date and give us a call to reserve a seat. Please join us!
Plans are in full swing for the 3rd Annual “Chair-ty Auction” to benefit KidsPeace Foster Care in Fayettevile. The September 29th event raises money by auctioning off chairs decorated by local artists — and you see from these pictures that this year’s submissions may be the best ever!
