Foster Care Recruitment and Retention Plans

The Department of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF) is committed to the goal that all children and youth should be cared for in a safe, supportive family setting. To support this goal, DCYF is focused on partnering with the community and its leaders and organizations who can "Be An Anchor" for children and families involved in Rhode Island’s child welfare system.
