Casey Family Programs is the nation’s largest operating foundation entirely focused on foster care. Since 1966, they have worked to provide and improve—and ultimately prevent the need for—foster care in the United States. As advocates for change, they are committed to their 2020 Strategy – an ambitious yet attainable goal to safely reduce the number of children in foster care and improve the lives of those who remain in care.

They state that decades of front-line experience make them exceptionally qualified to identify various improvements in child welfare practices, and help states and counties implement them. The foundation, established by UPS founder Jim Casey, is headquartered in Seattle, Washington.

Casey Family Programs is also well known for developing a number of tools used by Child Welfare Agencies, including the Ansell Casey Life Skills Assessment.[1] Casey is also the founding member of Foster Care Alumni of America.[2]

Casey Family Programs are based in Seattle, Washington. In 1976, Jim Casey started similar programs on the east coast, creating Casey Family Services, based in Connecticut to serve the New England states. Casey Family Programs and Casey Family Services have the same goal of improving lives of children everywhere.
