About Us

Our Culture

Join us in supporting child and family well-being.

Foster America cultivates a community that values and elevates diverse perspectives, experience, and expertise. We’re shaping new ways forward
for children and families by working hand in hand with local communities, our partners, and those who have experienced the child welfare system firsthand.


Our mission: Together with communities, Foster America transforms systems that serve children, youth, and families by innovating for a more just, equitable future.

Our vision: Every child, youth, and family thrives.

Five core values guide our work.


We acknowledge the current and historic impact of racism and other forms of oppression on children and families, and we are committed to ensuring all people have access to the resources and relationships that enable them to thrive.

Self Determination

We believe children, families, and communities know their own contexts best and can determine their own paths.


We believe in ongoing innovation and iteration, embracing both the realism and optimism necessary to create systemic change.


We believe in connected communities where every individual is safe, included, and able to use their voice to promote positive change.

Generational Change

We advance solutions that are impactful, sustainable, and improve the lives of future generations.
