Have a heart for children and a desire to make a real difference? The National Youth Advocate Program (NYAP), a leading foster care organization, is expanding to Evansville! This exciting news means more children in need will have a chance at a safe and loving home, and Evansville families have a new resource to join the cause.

Why is Foster Care Needed in Evansville?

  • Over 500 children in Southwest Indiana are currently in foster care and many face uncertainty due to limited resources.
  • Keeping siblings together is a priority, but there aren't enough qualified foster homes to make it happen in every case.
  • NYAP's expansion will provide much-needed support for children, youth, and families in Posey, Vanderburgh, Warrick, and surrounding counties.

What Makes NYAP Different?

  • 24/7 Support and Training: NYAP doesn't leave you alone. They offer comprehensive training, 24/7 support, and ongoing resources to help you create a nurturing environment for children.
  • Family-Centered Approach: NYAP understands the importance of family reunification and works towards supporting biological families whenever possible.
  • Positive Impact: Foster parents like Shelley rave about NYAP's guidance and support: "NYAP has lit our path, held our hand, and continues to support us throughout this journey."
