We provide foster care and other direct services to 1,100 children and families through community-based offices in nine locations. We share what we learn with child welfare systems, tribes, courts, private providers and community partners.

We are committed to 2020:

We work in support of a range of public, private, tribal and community partners to: Safely reduce the need for foster care 50 percent by the year 2020. We partner with child welfare systems, families, policymakers, courts and American Indian tribes to support practices and policies that safely reduce the need for foster care, increase the safety and success of children and strengthen the resilience of families. Demonstrate how every child can have a safe and permanent family. We provide direct services with the goal that no child in our care will age out of the foster care system without a safe, loving family of his or her own. Through this work, we seek to influence improvements in life outcomes, especially in the areas of education, mental health and employment. Support more effective investments in children and families. We contribute nonpartisan information, data and resources to help public officials make more effective investments — and reinvestments — in children and families.
