Community Attention Foster Families (CAFF) is actively searching for families in Charlottesville, Albemarle, and surrounding communities.

Come learn more about our program and the process of becoming a foster/adoptive parent by attending one of our information sessions. You must attend an information session before participating in the foster parent training.  

Our next Information Session will be held in June. Please call our office at 434-970-3735 or request more information by email. If you are a 2 parent household, both people must attend all foster parent training sessions.
