Friends' Work in Foster Care: The Well-Being Continuum
For nearly thirty years, Friends of the Children has been empowering youth and families who have been impacted by foster care and the child welfare system (here are a couple of links to help define what we mean by foster care and the child welfare system). We work with community partners and the system itself to identify families who are at different places in terms of their experience to ensure that our model is serving the children and families who need us most.
Friends of the Children's Work Along the Continuum:
Our youth and family-led, trauma-informed approach supports health and well-being for children and those families along that continuum with these goals in mind:
- Promoting safe and well-supported children and families - Providing hope-inspiring services that mitigate trauma and promote well-being - Preventing further involvement with the child welfare system
