Adoption Services

Family Builders offers different programs for fostering, adoption, and other forms of permanency for those families who are ready to meet the needs of children and older youth waiting in the foster care system.


Foster Care Services

There are thousands of children and youth in the nine Bay Area Counties who are in foster care. Nearly half are in Alameda and San Francisco Counties.
