Our vision is that every child, youth, and family involved in child welfare will have the ability to achieve their hopes, fulfill their dreams, and thrive. Rooted in our values of empathy, integrity, collaboration, justice, and dedication, our philosophy is to put children at the center of our work, considering their desires, values, and culture to achieve the best outcome. Since 1994, we have joined thousands of children, youth, and families in safe and loving homes either temporarily while they are in foster care, or permanently through adoption. Our work consists of four primary efforts along a continuum of care: 1) recruit, train, and support resource (foster) parents to care for children in the child welfare system, 2) join children with forever families through adoption, 3) support young adults with trauma and child welfare system histories as they transition to adulthood, and 4) advocacy and public policy work. We take tremendous pride in our model to reduce childhood trauma, encourage safety and stability, and empower children and youth to thrive. Join our dynamic team and make a difference in the lives of children and youth in foster care!
