Alternative Family Services (AFS)
is a foster, adoptions and mental health agency committed to fostering nurturing family environments within communities for children in need. AFS has been creating safe, permanent connections for foster children and youth in the Bay Area since 1978. AFS services focus on building sustainable relationships for children and youths in and out of foster care through supporting families at risk; creating permanency options for all foster children; providing mental health and other support to children, youth and their families; preparing foster youth for adult independent living; and responding to needs in the community as they arise.
exists to ensure every child has the opportunity to be a part of a safe, nurturing, lifelong family. We provide foster care, adoption, family finding, kinship support and other supportive services as well as post-adoption resources in numerous counties. Since opening our doors in 1980, we have helped over 9,500 children find permanent, loving families to call their own through adoption. We are 100% family focused and we passionately believe that every child needs and deserves a family – that a system is no place for a child to grow up. Our work is too important to do alone. We collaborate with others who are committed to change, and together, we break down barriers for youth and families every day.
Seneca Family of Agencies
sustains children and families through the most difficult times of their lives. In many cases, we are the last hope for young people who have come to see failure and discouragement as a way of life. Here at Seneca, we offer each child a simple but profound promise: You will be supported every step of the way, no matter what challenges you face. By supporting each child and family in identifying and building upon their resources and strengths, we enable them to approach the future with renewed optimism and a stronger sense of the possibilities for creating a new and different story for their lives.
