Together We Can Make a Difference!
Foster parents and relative caregivers have valuable tips and tricks to help each other navigate the foster care system. Our public Facebook page is a place for empowerment and has helpful hints based on experience. Building upon our mission, we are committed to giving those who care about foster children a stronger voice and providing support and resources for success in your ability to advocate for your rights and for what your foster child needs for a happy, healthy and safe future.
Sharing through the Alliance is done through a moderated Facebook page by a foster parent mentor, not a representative from DCYF or anyone from a NHDHHS collateral agency, organization or a contracted state employee.
We would really like to hear from you if you've had a positive experience with foster care, especially it was cooperative or you were able to overcome adversity with DCYF, CASA or their collateral agencies, like an ISO organization or a parent aide company. If you feel confused, misled or discriminated against, we hope that information on our website and posts from fellow foster parents and relative caregivers will provide you with some guidance and support.
This Facebook page is public and is a useful tool to help others. To maintain the confidentiality of our foster children and their birth families it may not be used to share personal stories that contain identifying information or demographics related to an abuse/neglect case. If you'd like to share your story please scroll down below for instructions.
The integrity of the Alliance community is of utmost importance to us. It adds meaning to our mission and brings us together in a special way where foster parents can feel comfortable sharing, therefore we do ask all members to please be mindful of other people's feelings. Reprisal or any disrespectful or disparaging remarks will not be tolerated and a Facebook page follower or member of the Alliance may be subject to immediate removal.
