Casey Family Programs works in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and two territories and with 16 tribal nations to safely reduce the need for foster care and build Communities of Hope for children and families. From 2008 through 2018, Casey Family Programs will have invested $648 million to support the work of the child welfare system, courts, policymakers and organizations that support children and families.
Today, almost all of the federal government’s dedicated child welfare funding can be spent by states and tribes only on services related to foster care. Some states have received waivers to invest their federal dollars in services and interventions that better protect children, improve outcomes and strengthen families.
Progress across America
Since our founding in 1966, Casey Family Programs has invested more than $2.7 billion to help communities across America keep children safe, make families strong and build Communities of Hope.
We partner with public child welfare systems, courts, policymakers, families, businesses, faith-based organizations, tribes and others to help better prevent abuse and neglect and support stable, lifelong families for all children.
Casey Family Programs operates 16 offices across the United States to provide and improve — and ultimately prevent the need for — foster care.
We believe this work is making a meaningful improvement to the lives of children and families across America. Congress and the federal government have a role to play in making sure smart investments are made that effectively address the needs of the community’s vulnerable children and their families.
