Who We Are

Founded in 1972 and incorporated in 1974, embrella, formerly Foster and Adoptive Family Services, serves foster, adoptive and kinship parents in communities throughout NJ.

Who We Help

Children are placed in foster care because they have experienced abuse or neglect and it is unsafe for them to remain at home. They are innocent victims of unfortunate circumstances. But they are not alone. We support children and resource parents that provide the critical care that foster children need.

How We Help

We provide services, support and training opportunities for foster, adoptive and kinship families, and others having the responsibility for and/or the interest in the well-being of children.

Our Mission and Vision

Our Mission is to provide advocacy and enriching programs and services to empower families and youth to thrive. We help foster children achieve their dreams and wishes. Our vision is a future where all youth and families thrive in safe, stable and nurturing homes.
