Welcome to the Cole County Chapter of Midwest Foster Care and Adoption Association.
The Cole County Chapter of the Midwest Foster Care and Adoption Association has been in existence since October of 2007. It was founded by former foster youth, foster parents, and adoptive parents. The CCMFCAA is the only community service organization that steps in and provides for the needs of our foster and adoptive children beyond what the state provides. Currently, we are assisting 42 foster families, 120 foster children, and 143 adoptive families in the Cole County area. Our goal is to be a support to these families and children, and we work tirelessly to provide much needed services to them.
Our support group provides assistance for children through while in continued care.
