Remember who taught you how to drive? Helped you with homework? Who read to you, laughed with you, encouraged you to reach your goals was even there to bandage skinned knees? Every child needs a caring adult in their life. The power of that one strong adult relationship is a key ingredient in resilience and changes that child’s life forever.
Monroe Harding offers several ways for individuals, families and communities to become involved as foster parents, volunteers or mentors of children and youth who need an adult role model.

In Their Own Words
If it wasn’t for Monroe Harding, I would have been on the streets having no mind of my own.
Every child needs a faithful fan, especially in a losing season.
What you give is important! What you get in return is satisfaction for a lifetime!
Monroe Harding acted like a parent to me. They taught me how to be socially & morally responsible.
Two little boys, age 5 and 6, have moved over 10 times in their young lives… Feeling unwanted and unsure of where they would go next, they moved to their new home. After noticing the “wall of love” in the house, one of their first questions was, “When will we get our names on the wall?”
We celebrate the Gordon family, who became richer in love three times over today. Natalie, Deacon and David (in the front row of the picture by their sister Sadie) were adopted today. The joy in their hearts was evident and it was wonderful to watch the brothers and sisters play together, laugh together and support each other.
Marla and George McKnight welcomed a brother and a sister into their hearts three years ago and today the judge made it official. Kaydee, is 3 years old, beautiful and full of spunk. Her older brother asked if he could change his first name, so we’re proud to congratulate eight-year-old A.J. on his very special day.
