Building Families for Children Inc
Our vision is "A safe, nurturing family for ever child. A supportive, thriving community for every family." Over the years, we've helped about 20,000 children and parents regardless of their background or beliefs. We serve kids in families and communities, versus institutional settings, believing this best encourages their healthy growth and development. Whenever possible, we try to keep children with their biological parents. We offer families therapeutic services and material support, and we work with communities to create a place where families can thrive. If for whatever reason a child must move, we temporarily place them with another family ? a secure, screened and monitored one. This placement may be with a volunteer ?host family? for a matter of days or months to give their parents a chance to get back on their feet. Other volunteers provided additional support. Or, placement may be with a therapeutic foster family. Dedicated foster parents help children with behavioral and/or emotional needs while working with mental health professionals. We also offer support to young adults who are aging out of foster care. A team of volunteers helps the young adult establish goals and together they develop and implement a plan for a success.
