Helping others cope with major life transitions
Transitioning in and out of the foster care system can be a trauma-inducing experience, and progressing into adulthood can also be a stressful ordeal.
By developing a plan and instigating support for these children, they will be significantly more prepared for adulthood and their transition out of foster care.

HEAR HOW WE HAVE HELPED
I’ve been a foster parent for over 18 years and with BATGO for 3 years. I absolutely enjoy doing this type of work. I have had the pleasure of working with the wonderful staff at BATGO. Wonderful youth and I’m learning new things from the youth and teaching them as much as I can. It’s just been an absolute pleasure to work with the staff who communicate well, and who appreciate the work that foster parents do on a daily basis and I welcome the opportunity to tell other parents the great joy and benefits of being a foster parent. ~ Linda Roundtree
We have been foster parents for over 10 years and have fostered many children. We have one young man right now that has been with us for over 6 years. It has been our pleasure to work with this organization. They are there to support us and to support this young man and to push him to do the best that he can do and the best that he can be. We are grateful for BATGO because they not only look out for the children, they look out for us, foster parents. We have a very cohesive relationship with our foster son and the organization. We want to thank you, BATGO, for all you do what you give out, and all you supply for the needs of our home to make our foster son the best that he can be. ~Mr. & Mrs. Flanagan,
Alisa Bell, Foster parent
I have a sincere love for all children and a soft spot in my heart. To know that sometimes children are abused and neglected and that I’m able to give them the love that they deserve, led me to be a foster parent. I’m hoping love will help nurture someone and give them hope.
Maria Waldron, Foster parent
I’m a foster parent with BATGO and have been here for so many years. I love kids. I love to inspire them and teach them all kinds of talents and skills. When a youth comes into the program, they are enlightened by some of the things that I do in Baltimore City that can help make them independent. I get them (Foster youth) ready for independent living and out on their own.
