for Family Extension Foster Care & Adoption Agency.



 Welcome to Family Extension Foster Care & Adoption agency, (FEFC), a non-profit organization with its main office in the San Joaquin County. The organization was founded in 2006, with a mission and passion to work with the at-risk children and provide a safe, healthy and stable environment conducive to positive, lasting change. Without permanent nurturing relationships with loving and caring adults, foster children are far more likely to endure poverty, homelessness, compromised health, unemployment, incarceration and other adversities, after they leave the foster care system, than their peers in the general population. 

Armed with this knowledge, our goal is to provide a family environment to children who would otherwise be placed in institutional settings. Our main objective is to partner with adults in our communities who, like us, believe that children are our future. We can change their destinies by touching their lives  one  at a time. To that end, we seek out and recruit committed adults in our communities who are willing to invest their time and energy toward raising these children. We provide training and Approve Resource Families in compliance with state and county requirements. Once a home is approved, we continue to support the family by providing continuous education and open communication with the children and parents as well. Our “extended” families are the cornerstone of our success; ourResource Families are our pride and joy.

It has been rightly said, “it takes a village to raise a child”. Accordingly, we invite responsible community members to partner with us in our endeavors to raise the "at-risk" children in our community. Our organization is a 501(c)(3) and thrives on the participation of one and all who are willing to bring safety and stability to troubled children. We invite those of you who have extra room(s) in your hearts and homes to consider opening them to this population. We invite businesses and individuals who are able to give monetary and or in-kind donations, especially around Christmas and other holidays, to enable us to make these occasions memorable for our children.  “To him who has been given much, much is required”,  Thus, the cycle of compassion and goodwill continues indefinitely.
