Mission Statement

Family Builders believes that every child has the right to grow up in a permanent, nurturing family regardless of that child’s age, race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, or medical, physical or emotional condition. 

Family Builders’ mission is to:

  • Achieve permanency for children and youth by creating and strengthening families and relationships who will support and sustain them;
  • Advocate for systemic changes that instill hope, belonging, and inclusion for all children and the families who care for them and
  • Advance best practices based on equity, justice, and anti-racist and anti-oppressive policies in child welfare and juvenile justice systems.

Family Builders’ goal is that no child will leave the foster care system without a permanent, loving and caring parent.

Family Builders is welcoming and affirming of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender families who wish to adopt children from the foster care system.
