To improve outcomes for At-Risk and Foster-Placed youth, resource families, and supporting agencies through meaningful programs and community partnerships.
A Virginia free of barriers where all families can access the resources to reduce Foster Placements and a Foster System that serves as a W.H.O.L.E. Community for vulnerable populations.
We believe that all families should enjoy the opportunity to thrive, and all children should have access to a supportive community and the resources for a bright future. Therefore we establish partnerships and programs to enable prevention, support, and outreach services within Virginia communities.
