FOSTERING HOPE IN 2022
During these difficult and uncertain times, the Marin Foster Care Association (MFCA) is redefining its commitment to support safe and consistent care for foster children and nourish the amazing adults caring for them. Learn more about how you can help us to achieve our mission below!
Who we are and why we do what we do…
Marin Foster Care Association (MFCA) has been a registered 501(c)3 non-profit since October 2015. Originally founded in 2003 as a chapter of the California State Foster Parent Association, we moved toward independency as a non-profit and expanded our mission and services in response to the Resource Family Approval Act (RFA) of January 2017.
RFA re-defined “foster parents” to include traditional foster families, foster-to-adopt families, relative and non-relative care providers – Resource Families.
We address the well-being of ALL children within the dependency system (including foster and fost-adopt children, in home and non-minor dependents),
and serve the full constituency of caregivers for that population.
As the county’s primary provider of foster care support services, MFCA focuses on turning a period of profound crisis in a child’s life into a time of security and healing.
