Mission Statement:
The Council on Foster Care, Adoption, & Kinship Care (COFCAKC) was formed in 2011 when the Section on Adoption and Foster Care (founded in 2000) merged with relevant parts of the Committee on Early Childhood, Adoption, and Dependent Care, and the Task Force on Foster Care. It is dedicated to improving the health and well being of children and youth in foster care, kinship care, and those who have been adopted.
