New app connects foster families with local businesses – WISH-TV | Indianapolis News | Indiana Weather

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A new app has launched to help foster families connect with local businesses.

It’s called Foster Friendly and it aims to offer foster parents discounts to help their adopted children.

Indiana Kids Belong is the parent company behind this app.

There are currently 95 different businesses across the state on the app.

Adoptive parent MC Youngblood said: “Having such resources at our fingertips is huge.

Youngblood and her husband had seven adopted children in their home.

The application saw the results immediately when it was launched.

“Within a week, we had over 700 user downloads,” said Alyssa Clark, regional director of community engagement for Indiana Kids Belong. “We’re over 800 now. That number grows a little bit every day.”

Indiana Kids Belong employees continue to search for more businesses to join the app and help more than 6,000 foster parents in the state.
