You Can Make A Difference In The Life Of A Child

There is an urgent need for families to provide safe homes for children. If you are interested in becoming a foster, adoptive, or kinship parent, please contact your local Michigan Department of Human Services. If you are unable to foster or adopt, you can show your support by becoming a member of MAFAK Parents and/or by making a donation. The money raised will provide training for parents. You can also sponsor a parent to attend our annual training conference.

Support Groups?

Are you aware of any support groups in your area? How about anywhere in the State of Michigan? Please contact us today! We want to link to that information so all of our families can take advantage. Thank you!

Please see the Support MAFAK page on our website for more information on how you can help.


MAFAK is committed to the retention and empowerment of families to successfully parent all children placed in their care by providing training, advocacy, legislation and support groups.
