What we aim to solve New!

Throughout Virginia, there are families that are in need of additional support. As they struggle with their mental health, addiction, abuse, or other situations that are challenging, families require support in temporary housing for children while parents get assistance, in helping children or mentally incapacitated adults with therapy in-home, and in helping parents learn how to best support their children. For Children's Sake attempts to fill the gaps in county services and provide additional support to those families.

FCSVA is dedicated to promoting positive environments for children and families that develop trust, stability and independence. In an ideal world, For Children's Sake of Virginia aims to create a world where all children live in healthy, permanent homes.

FCSVA provides an array of services to adults, families and children in our community. Services include: therapeutic and emergency foster care, pre- and post- adoption support, and our community based services, which include adult mental health support, supervised visitation, mentoring, intensive in-home therapy, intensive care coordination, and outpatient therapy. We believe in not just helping children once they're in the foster care system, but in using our community-based services to prevent the removal of children from homes and to help them transition back to their homes.

For Children's Sake of Virginia has in the last several years had an average of 25 foster families located all over Northern Virginia, from Loudoun County to Fredericksburg to Alexandria and everywhere in between. With these and our dedicated case managers to support them, we are able to help transition children into and out of the foster system with significant support on their way towards a more permanent goal. We also have 13 community-based counselors, who work to actively engage children and families at risk of displacement to foster care, psychiatric hospitalization, and these counselors are able to help children meet their therapeutic goals and stay secure in their current homes.

When a child is able to return to a permanent placement out of foster care, whether to a biological or adoptive home, we are able to see the impact we are making towards our goal. When a child meets their therapeutic goals in community-based therapy, we are also able to see the stabilization of that child in their current home. The more frequently we are able to do this, and the larger our capacity grows in terms of foster families and community-based staff, the easier it will be to continue to make that progress.

Every year, more than half of our foster children either return home or to an adoptive placement, and we hope to expand that number through continual support of our foster parents. Our community-based program has grown in scope in the last few years, and has tripled in staff members in 2018 alone. This has expanded the number of clients we're able to offer trifold, and we look forward to continuing to build capacity in our case managers and foster parents at a similar speed. We have no plans to begin any additional programs, but rather intend to focus all of our energy on our foster and community-based programs in the immediate future.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).

Diversity notes from the nonprofit
As an organization that works with children of all backgrounds, including those of different racial and ethnic backgrounds, those who conform to different gender norms, with various physical and mental disabilities, and more, we are constantly looking for volunteers and staff that can help meet those needs. We actively recruit with those of different backgrounds in mind, and encourage a diversity of staff.
