Fostering Connections Act

Ensuring successful implementation of the Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act of 2008

The Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act of 2008 represents the most significant federal reforms for abused and neglected children in foster care in more than a decade. The act’s numerous improvements are all intended to achieve better outcomes for children who are at risk of entering or have spent time in foster care. These reforms represent significant first steps, but it will take work to implement them effectively to truly help children and to move on to secure additional reforms.
