Our mission is to strengthen and support families so that their children can be raised in loving and nurturing homes, within communities that support them.
You can make a difference
CFCS recruits and supports new families who can provide transitional care for children who have been referred to the state foster care system.
Become a CFCS volunteer! We are a small nonprofit with a broad constituency, and we depend on help from volunteers who provide their time or expertise to help with facilities, events and our holiday gift drive.
There are many ways for individuals and businesses to support the critical work that CFCS provides in the community. Host a gathering, run a 5K, sponsor our annual auction, or fulfill a holiday wish list.
After 140 years, there are a lot of CFCS stories…..and we’d love to hear yours. Tell us about your own experience with foster care, adoption, or your involvement with CFCS.
“I’ve had a lot of jobs in my life, but being a mother was the most satisfying. I never knew there was a paying job doing that. Then CFCS asked me to be a specialized foster parent. It’s been almost 10 years now, and a lot kids have come through my home, and I’m still at it. Thank you CFCS for giving me a chance to do what I love while giving a chance to some very special kids.”
