We work to alleviate conditions that are harmful to families or place children at risk.

The Foundation is working to alleviate conditions that are harmful to families or place children at risk of maltreatment by supporting organizations that provide prevention services, substitute care, and permanency options for children and youth.

The Foundation supports organizations that prevent child maltreatment. Through support for prevention services, The Foundation encourages healthy family functioning and resiliency of youth who have faced adverse experiences.

The Foundation seeks organizations that support children in substitute care and ensure that all children achieve permanency in home that is safe and healthy. For youth who have been maltreated and removed from their home, The Foundation supports organizations that provide those youth with effective support services and safe, therapeutic placements – especially those that can meet the needs of youth with high needs. The Foundation also supports organizations that fight to hold perpetrators of child abuse and neglect accountable.

The Foundation’s focus in child welfare is primarily:

  • Providing youth in substitute care with therapeutic placements and services
  • Building community capacity to care for youth who have been abused or neglected
