Imagine not having childhood photos. Many of the youth in foster care today leave the foster care system with very few photos of their childhood. As a former foster parent I realized there was a need to provide photographs for these children. From infants to high school seniors! As a hobby photographer, I started to provide these photos. However, the need was greater than what just one person could provide. This is where the Fostered Memories Network was born!
The Fostered Memories Network is a non-profit network of professional photographers that give of their time & talent to local foster children. Having professional photos helps the child to feel like
they are known, they are loved and that they matter!
If you're a professional photographer and would like to join the Fostered Memories Network, start by applying here!

Youth Villages has 3 programs in Oregon. They support families & youth in foster care be better prepared for adulthood. We didn't know about this organization when we were struggling as foster parents. They are a wonderful resource!
