We are on a Mission! Please Help Us Meet Our 70th Birthday Challenge with a Matching Gift!

Our Executive Director, Gail Johnson Vaughan is turning 70 this year. In celebration of her 70th birthday, two generous donors have offered to match up to $70,000 in donations. This money will go toward making permanency a reality for the many children we help each year. Help us take advantage of this great opportunity!

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.
