Our Ohio Foster Care Foundations


Greetings from Columbus, Ohio! This time of year it is mostly cold, snowy and gray, but Foster Love - Together We Rise is shining brighter than ever! We have some friends at the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption who are AMAZING and let us use space in their office a few times each week to work on projects for TWR. There are 5 girls that come in each week, so needless to say we are a lively bunch! We have office space, internet, and phone hook-ups, kitchen access, a television and a candy bowl that is magically filled every time we come in. Did I mention how great foster care foundations like Dave Thomas Foundation are?!

Speaking of great, I’d like you to meet the Ohio team! Here’s just a glimpse of all the ladies we have working out here in C-bus:

Hi, my name is Cindy Spencer! I’m a 19-year-old young adult, aspiring to succeed in the Public Relations Field once I graduate! I’m interning with Foster Love - Together We Rise because Foster Love - Together We Rise’s purpose and drive are extremely commendable. Being part of such a great foundation encourages and motivates me to make a difference in the lives of the children in the Foster Care System.

Hello! I’m Elizabeth and I work at a hotel here in Columbus, OH.  You can usually find me cooking, running, or listening to an awesome podcast. I’m working with TWR because I feel it is everyone’s responsibility when it comes to the well-being of children.

Hi everyone! I’m Jamie and I graduated from Ohio State University in December with a degree in Strategic Communications and a minor in Fashion & Retail Studies. After interning with the puppy mills campaign for The Humane Society of the United States I knew I wanted to work with nonprofits. That’s how I ended up working with the great people at Foster Love - Together We Rise!

My name is Savannah and I am originally from Princeton, West Virginia & recently moved to Columbus. I have a Bernese Mountain Dog named Duke and he is my child :). I also love the Pittsburgh Steelers, manatees, & french fries!! I’m very random, fun, and excited to be apart of Foster Love - Together We Rise. I can’t wait to see the growth of this non-profit & am very thankful for the opportunity to work with all of you! God bless. 🙂

And I’m Shannon, the intern manager who has had the pleasure of working with TWR since last May. I’m currently studying communications and psychology at Capital University. I am so glad to be bringing a little bit of this great organization to the Ohio region!

Stay tuned for updates about adventures, projects, and advocacy from the Ohio team as we bring a little bit of sunny, California TWR to this side of the U.S.’s foster care foundations!
