Meet the prospective developmental, cultural, and permanency needs of children placed with foster families and adoptive families.
Strengthen families, whether they are families of origin, blended families, extended or kinship families, adoptive families, or members of a tribe or clan.
Strengthen the quality of family foster care and adoptive services by providing a standardized, structured framework for pre-service training and mutual assessment; for foster parent in-service training; and for ongoing professional development.
