Alaska Resource Family Advisory Board

The Alaska Resource Family Advisory Board (RFAB) is a collaboration between the State of Alaska Office of Children’s Services (OCS) and the Alaska Center for Resource Families (ACRF). The mission of the RFAB is to provide education, understanding and guidance to resource families and OCS for the benefit of all through open and continuing communication with OCS workers and administration to create a better environment for all children. The RFAB is led jointly by a foster parent and a representative of OCS. The RFAB developed the Resource Family Bill of Rights in cooperation with OCS. Finalized in 2018, the bill of rights is provided to all foster parents and social workers and covers 13 key areas and is intended to be a useful tool for families and provide clarification on day-to-day questions.
