FostAdopt Connections is a new grassroots nonprofit founded in 2021 for kinship, foster, and adoptive families in Tucson. Our mission is to support and empower kinship, foster, and adoptive families by providing mentorship and building connections to resources and the local community. Typically organizations involved in foster care have contracts with the state which provides these agencies with funding. This often leads them to make decisions based on funding rather than the needs of foster children and foster families. At FostAdopt Connections, we are committed to being a neutral and safe place for kinship, foster, and adoptive families to get the support, training, resources, and guidance they need for success so we choose to remain financially independent.
