We Strive to Make a Difference
The Connecticut Alliance of Foster and Adoptive Families (CAFAF) makes a difference in the lives of foster, adoptive and relative caregivers by providing support, training, and advocacy. The Alliance works in partnership with child welfare professionals and the entire community to nurture child safety, well being, and stability.
At CAFAF we work with DCF to find foster families who provide safe, caring homes for children while DCF and the courts plan for the children’s futures. To learn more call 888-Kid-Hero
CAFAF supports a number of foster and adoptive training opportunities to help develop your core competencies. CAFAF Post-Licensing Module Classes, CAFAF Conference Series, CPR Classes and Foster Parent College.
Donate to Foster and Adoptive Families
Monetary contributions to CAFAF will directly support our mission. The donations go toward a variety of needs for the organizations and the families we serve. Monetary donations work well for individuals who want to help but don’t have a lot of time to volunteer.
