WHAT IS RAF?
We are a support program for foster and adoptive parents. We partner with foster, adoptive, and kinship parents (like you!) in order to provide them with much needed resources, education, and connection.
FOR CAREGIVERS BY CAREGIVERS
We understand that this work isn’t sustainable alone and that caregiving is complicated! We exist to support you through phone call check-ins, Thursday evening support groups, self-care nights, or getting you connected to the right therapist for your kiddo. There are resources available and we want to get you connected to them.
Welcoming children from hard places into your home is wonderful and complex, bringing both beauty and loss. It requires you to say “yes” to caring for them daily – we understand how incredible and difficult this can be. We get that trauma has played a major role in your family’s life and want to provide safe & healing spaces and people to support you on your journey.
