Welcome to AFFM



Adoptive and Foster Families of Maine, Inc. & the Kinship Program (AFFM) provides support services for adoptive, foster, and kinship families.
AFFM’s Mission is to provide the training, guidance, knowledge, and resources needed to handle complex issues encountered by resource families as they open their hearts and homes to children in need.
AFFM’s services are for all adoptive, foster and kinship families. Child welfare is dependent upon a myriad of state and federal laws, rules, and regulations. Decisions concerning families and innocent children are rarely easy and are usually fraught with highly emotional issues. AFFM is dedicated to assisting families to help children find the security they deserve.
