Columbus Dispatch: Second Nurture expands to Columbus

There are a number of exciting things that have been happening in Columbus, Ohio!

This past March we officially launched our first affiliate branch and have implemented the Second Nurture model in three Columbus partner communities: Temple Israel, First Church, and Tifereth Israel. Together, they represent the Broad Street Interfaith Alliance, a co-op of faith-based communities that work in partnership with us to share ideas, leverage resources, and create a more diverse support network for our foster families.

Our expansion was only possible through the generous support of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, The Columbus Foundation, and the United Way of Central Ohio.

The activities of Second Nurture have received attention of the Columbus Dispatch. You can read the whole article here.

Next week, on Tuesday, May 17th, 6-7pm ET we will co-host our first foster orientation with our incredible community partner, The Buckeye Ranch. All are welcome and encouraged to attend. Register here to join us. If you have additional questions, email me at

We hope to see you there!

Courtney Keys, Regional Director 2N Columbus
