The Foster and Adoptive Family Services Foundation was founded in 2008 with the mission to support New Jersey's abused and neglected children. When the abuse and neglect is severe, children are removed from their homes and placed in foster care. There are thousands of children in foster care in NJ that the Foundation is dedicated to supporting.
Foster and Adoptive Family Services Foundation fulfills their mission by granting financial support to Foster and Adoptive Family Services (FAFS) and its programs that directly provide for the needs of children in foster care. These programs include Fostering Wishes for Children, A Holiday Celebration for Every Child and a wide variety of scholarships, which offer New Jersey's most vulnerable children opportunities to do things every child should have. Without such life experiences like college, summer camp, extracurricular activities, and joyful holiday observances, it would be difficult for these children to overcome their obstacles and, once again, thrive in the community.
The Foundation seeks to grow a community of caring people who believe in our children; who understand that strong foundations nurture the spirits of our children and ensure healthy communities from which we all benefit. We invite you to partner with us in helping children when they are at their most vulnerable, to again instill trust, hope, and confidence in a child, and most of all, give that child a chance to find the care and devotion they deserve.
