National Foster Parent Association, Inc.

Walk Me Home was created for a threefold purpose; generate awareness of foster care, recruit and retain foster families, and to raise much-needed funds to support the programs and services of the foster care associations nationwide.  Several states are conducting multiple Walks.

What is Walk Me Home?

Walk Me Home is the signature fundraising and awareness event for foster care in America. We know not everyone can be a foster parent, but Walk Me Home is a great way to support the over 400,000 children in foster care.

How Can I Get Involved?

Your involvement can be simple and quick.

  • Click Get Started and then click on the walk you want to register for and create a fundraising page.
  • Click Raise Money to register or create your own individual fundraising page or to join a team.

You do not have to attend the Walk to help.  You can help right from your own home or you can do your walk on your own time in your local community, just ask friends and family to support you by donating to your page.

Not a Walk Near You?
