In June of 2000, Mark Fullington took on the responsibilities of a small, private child placing agency and changed the name to Community and Family Services Foundation. What started as a small office in Belfair, WA, supporting a few homes, has grown to an agency with five office locations, supporting approximately 150 homes throughout Washington State. Community and Family Services Foundation continues to grow and support foster parents, the children in their homes and the foster care community. We strive to make appropriate, lasting placements and move children toward permanency in a ‘forever home’, be it with their birth parents or a foster/adoptive family.
We believe that foster parents hold the key to the hearts of our forgotten youth and the need for people with a heart for foster children is now greater than ever. Currently, more than 1/2 million American children are not living at home because of distressing family situations. This number has doubled since 1987. Community and Family Services Foundation (CFSF) acknowledges the crucial role that foster families play in restoring security and hope to these children. With sufficient management, training, support and encouragement, CFSF meets the needs of our forgotten youth by meeting the needs of the foster families who care for them.
With a collaborative approach, Community and Family Services has won the respect of the community it serves by working with volunteers, community leaders, service providers and family members to bring about the best possible outcomes for Washington State’s vulnerable citizens. The agency is devoted to giving children a seamless transition into a stable environment, while maintaining safe and appropriate connections with the families that love them.
Community and Family Services Foundation proudly serves the needs of every type of child.
