Programs & Services
Brighter Futures offers a variety of programs and services to support foster children, persons with disabilities, and our proctor families.
Brighter Futures is a dual licensed agency, meaning we are contracted through the Division of Child and Family Services (DCFS) as well as the Department of Services for People with Disabilities (DSPD). This means Brighter Futures is contracted to serve both foster children and those with disabilities. Brighter Futures offers free, specialized training to each of our foster parents to equip them with the necessary skills and awareness to uplift, care, and serve the individuals in their home.
