Join us in transforming the future for adopted, foster and kinship children!

iCARE4 Adoptive And Foster Families will offer curated training in ONE HUB for access to the latest information, programs, webinars, support groups and training programs based on foundational principles and best-practices for supporting children affected by attachment trauma no matter where they live.


We believe in strong families, compassionate trained professionals and mental health codes and policies based on recommended best practices.  


The first chapter of our children’s stories may be tough, but all of us, united, can provide a happy ending!
