With regard to our clients AFS provides, restores, treats, helps and celebrates. In the course of operations AFS recruits, screens, hires, certifies, trains, employs, supervises, allocates, and expends. But the common denominator of all of our activities is that we support. We support families, children and youth in foster, adoptive, and extended families settings morally, materially, therapeutically, educationally. The basic AFS clinical model is, at heart, a highly individualized social support model.
