The Foster Family Resource Center of Southern Illinois is an IRS 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization which provides a variety of services for foster families with new children in their care as well as those with long term placements.

We provide — completely free of charge — items which families receiving new foster care placements — will need but may not have to care for the child or children in their care. We primarily assist families with new placements (usually within the first few days or week of a placement) and verify placement with Illinois Department of Child and Family Services paperwork or through caseworkers.
