Many thanks to Winnie Comstock-Carlson, publisher of Comstock's Magazine (providing business insight for the capital region) for selecting and sponsoring Mission Focused Solutions for a full page ad in their February 2014 edition. We are thrilled. They highlight the fact that in the California Capital Region more than 3,000 children and youth are waiting in foster care for a permanent family. MFS is recognized for our effective work to identify and remove barriers that cause children to stay in foster care too long, move between families too often, and age-out without the safety net of committed permanent families.
Mission Focused Solutions is an independent, nonprofit organization that provides strategies and advocacy to assist child welfare organizations keep the promise of permanency for children in their care.
Solutions We Offer
- Funding Youth Permanency – Our proven funding methodology covers the cost of specialized services to achieve permanent families for “tweens” and teens in foster care
- Early Permanence – We help public and private placement agencies to increase placement stability and improving permanency outcomes for children in foster care through transformed recruitment and support of Resource Families. Resource Families take placement of children early in the reunification process, support the birth families to achieve their reunification plan while concurrently committing to adopt the children in their care that are unable to safely return home.
- Building Capacity for Permanence – We provide services to select child welfare organizations to improve their permanency practices and the organizational systems that support them.
