Thank you for your interest and passion to make a difference in the life of a foster youth!
The journey in becoming a resource foster parent is a rewarding experience that will forever change your life in more ways than you could have imagined.
Our licensed Foster Family Agency (FFA), Special Families Foster Care, is regarded as an exceptional program in San Diego County that specializes in training and certifying resource foster parents who want to open their loving homes to foster children and teens with mental, emotional and behavioral struggles.
In recent years, our team of trauma-informed experts have trained and certified over 70 resource foster parents. Additionally, we have placed and helped over 100 foster youth find hope and healing for a brighter future.
As San Diego’s oldest children’s nonprofit, accredited by The Joint Commission for our superior quality of care, you will be supported throughout your pre-and-post certification process by our caring team members. Program social workers will provide you with ongoing training and resources while you prepare for a foster child or teen to be placed in your home, and they will also be available to assist you, as needed 24/7, when a foster youth is placed under your care.
