DCFS believes by establishing strong networks of foster and adoptive families in every community, children in foster
care are more likely to stay close to home, the schools they know and the friends and extended family
they trust. We hope that you will join a local recruitment team to help us build a network of families
willing to help. If you would like to learn more about the foster care needs and opportunities specific
to your community, contact a Community Engagement Specialist in your county.
If you have any questions, please contact the specialist in your area (see map) or Avery Carter, the Program
Manager at 501-682-8747 or firstname.lastname@example.org
