NFCC POLICY PRIORITIES:
Many caring voices, one compelling vision
The mission of the National Foster Care Coalition (NFCC) is to build and sustain the political and public will needed to improve the nation's foster care system and the lives and futures of the children and youth in its care. NFCC, and its broad-based, national constituency of individuals, organizations, foundations, and associations, focuses exclusively on issues that define and impact the foster care system and vulnerable children, youth, and families.
NFCC reviews public policy and legislation to find out how it affects children, and shares this information with its coalition members, policymakers, child advocates, and the public.
NFCC represents many voices, but has a singular vision of improving, and reducing the need for, the foster care experience for children. NFCC is dedicated to raising public awareness, coordinating advocacy efforts and building diverse alliances that promote positive outcomes for children, youth, and families in the child welfare system.
