FAM, the Foster Adoptive Mission, is a federally-funded collaborative of regional organizations dedicated to placing children in safe, nurturing homes in Connecticut. FAM began as a statewide initiative in 1997, and quickly grew to provide a unique opportunity for regional child welfare providers and concerned citizens to collaborate and share resources and ideas aimed at supporting and recruiting foster and adoptive families. Today, there are six regional communities for foster care and adoption in CT. Each functions independently, although all act in partnership under the umbrella of the Connecticut Collaboratives for Children.
