Our Priorities

Reduce Residential Placement

We seek to improve practice and policy to reduce overreliance on residential placements. We work to increase family-based care (whether birth, kin, foster or adoptive) to improve outcomes for foster children.  Click to learn more.

We support efforts to improve the recruitment, support and retention of excellent foster families, including kin. We believe children who enter foster care should be in well-supported families.  Click to learn more.
