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.
