The FPIN information-sharing website is where Illinois foster parents will find the information they need to successfully care for the children in their home. With immediate access to information critical to their child's case, the stress foster parents experience while searching for this information will be reduced, and longevity for their foster child's placement encouraged. FPIN's mission is to be the most efficient and accurate child welfare information resource for Illinois, to provide immediate access to accurate and complete Illinois child welfare information, to promote self- efficacy, confidence and ability in foster parents, and to encourage adults that have the desire to parent children that are in need of a home.

Reasons to serve on our board

Our information-sharing platform is a unique, never been done before, approach to assisting foster parents in their quest to find the resources they need to care for the children in their home. Using today's software and AI capabilities we are able to relieve foster parents and child welfare professionals of complicated systems in obtaining critical child welfare information. FPIN is driven by the need for comprehensive child welfare information, and by the energy of our strong and active base of foster parents. At the onset, FPIN was launched as an established crowd-sourced platform for all things medical in Illinois' child welfare system. This includes medical laws, policies, procedures, providers, insurance, finances, forms and more. The platform is set up to receive limitless information from not only foster child caregivers, but also foster child service providers and child welfare professionals.
