The Foster Caregiver Advisory Boards provides a way for foster caregivers to work side by side with our agency’s foster care leadership team. To impact foster care services in each of our CYFS communities, CYFS Foster Caregiver Advisory Boards are active in the following communities:

Each Foster Care Advisory Board is as unique as it’s local community. Some hold meetings monthly while other meet quarterly. These meetings allow foster caregivers a way to join together to:

  • Address foster care giver needs such as trainings or identifying local resources
  • Improve foster care services
  • Consider ways to strengthen their local foster care experience
  • Assist in the development and delivery of the Foster Care Implementation Plan
  • Work together and support each other
  • Recruit and support new foster parents
  • Work with their local foster care staff on maintain positive relationships.
