Why is it Important?

As California's foster care system experiences a more than 50% increase in the number of children, now reaching 105,000, the AHC-FKCE program is essential in equipping licensed foster parents and relative caregivers with crucial training and education to address the multifaceted and complex needs of the growing foster care population.
