Special Families Foster Care
Our Foster Family Agency (FFA), Special Families Foster Care, helps match foster children and teens with families throughout San Diego. We understand the individualization that each placement requires and we work with diverse population of families ranging in age, race/culture, gender and location. We are sensitive in helping you meet all the needs of the youth placed in your home and have an overall focus on family relationships including bio-family visits and reunification.
We use evidence-based practices and promising practice approaches in our program. We have a permanency focus and strive to provide support to ensure this occurs. Our focus is on stabilizing the youth and ultimately returning/transitioning them to a permanent living situation in a family setting. Our Resource Family Approval process (foster family assessment and home study process) meets county expectations for foster and or adoptive care.
Foster children and teens in our program see great success with high graduation rates, low disruption rates, and many times, permanent placement following our program. Our staff is accessible, highly-qualified and experienced in the field. The dedicated team covers expertise in therapy, case management, education, trauma-informed care, community resources, skills training, and other supportive services.
We gladly accept referrals from Child Welfare Services, Probations and Adoptions Assistance Program.
