ABOUT US
Why We Do What We Do
Because all children deserve great memories of childhood.
Our History
Foster/Adopt agencies formed the Inter-agency Foster Care Collaborative in 1995.
To work as a foster care collaborative to ensure high quality families are recruited, trained, verified, and supported in caring for traumatized children in need of a foster or adoptive home. 

IFFC members meet on a monthly basis to: support the mission of participating agencies to provide the best possible care for foster children; recruit the best homes for adoptive children; and to assist DFPS in protecting our community’s children from abuse and neglect.
