Lifewise Foster Carers open up their hearts to children who need a safe and happy home when it’s not possible for them to stay with their own families. Our caregivers look after children for as long as required.
First, we work to keep families together
Lifewise works hard to help families stay together with innovative alternatives to Foster Care. We do our best to prevent children from being taken from their families in the first place. Sadly, sometimes it’s best for children to have a home away from the one they were born into.
Help us foster better futures
Lifewise provides high-quality foster care for children who need a safe and stable home. Foster Care is one of the most important things we do. We work hard to make sure siblings are not separated.
Every child is precious
Children’s lives can be turned upside down by chaos, neglect, and trauma. Often, the children who need Foster Care have been put at risk both physically and emotionally. When a home is no longer a safe place for a child, Lifewise is there to help.
Our caregivers are extraordinary
Our Carers are extraordinary people – compassionate, family-focused and big-hearted. Lifewise is one of Auckland’s most experienced foster care providers and is highly respected by other community organisations.
Lifewise Foster Carers come from all walks of life, and we will welcome Carers irrespective of age, gender, marital status or ethnicity. Our Carers are some of the best trained and supported in New Zealand.
“Put your hand out and help a child out if you can. These kids may not be of our blood, but they are of our heart.”
“None of these kids deserves to be in that situation. If everyone could do a little bit for them, it would make their lives so much better.
