Foster Care Support Foundation
Over the past 20 years, FCSF has served over 68,000 children in the state of Georgia, helping abused and neglected children experience a kind and nurturing daily life while displaced in foster and relative care. With a mission to strengthen the ability of foster and relative care families, enable them to meet the needs of their displaced children by implementing a community-based resource, education and various programs that can decrease the need for institutionalized care.
FCSF serves a vital and growing need throughout Georgia by providing free clothing, infant equipment and developmental toys to thousands of children in foster and relative care as well as serve abandoned, court-placed, and DFCS placed grandparents raising grandchildren and parents caring for relative’s children for a limited time. About 75% of the 4500 children served are now raised by grandparents without the biological parent’s involvement due to drugs, abuse, neglect or abandonment. Most of the relative caregivers receive no stipend to help raise the children.
