Since 1978, the AFS mission is to support vulnerable children and families in need of stability, safety, and well-being in communities.
AFS follows CDC recommendations and works closely with its county partners on ensuring a safe, equitable, and compassionate workplace for its youth, families, and staff.
Note: The foster care industry has replaced the terms "foster parent" and "foster family" with "resource parent" and "resource family."
