When you are ready for a child in foster care to join your family,
you become a very special part of ours.

Family Foster Care works because Children & Families First has assembled a team of professionals who support not only the child who needs care, but also the resource parent who is ready to offer care. Deciding to become a resource parent originates from a very personal and selfless place, but you're not alone. Resource families can rely on extensive training and support. CFF staff will support you and answer your questions every step of the way.
