Our mission is to build a responsive, educated and stable foster care community of families that can meet a variety of needs. We recruit and support safe, nurturing, trauma-informed resource parents. These resource parents include foster, kinship, respite and adoptive caregivers. We are dedicated to provide effective support, training and resources to caregivers and the children in their care.
To foster* healthy families and healthy communities!
To fulfill our vision we will:
- Encourage partnerships, collaboration, and integration of services to provide a "best-practice" service delivery system for all children and families and the people who support them.
- Provide context related training.
- Provide a context where social work students are prepared to accept leadership positions, implement strengths-focused interventions, and collaborate with agencies and community partners in public welfare practice.
