Regional Development

FACES appoints a representative to serve as your first point of contact for each of the five geographic regions of Virginia, corresponding to the regions defined by the Virginia Department of Social Services. You can use the map here to find out what VDSS region you live in. These boundaries are not inflexible, so we encourage you to research what works best for you, and don't hesitate to call and talk to your FACES regional representative to learn more about your regional events and support groups.

If you are currently a member of a local support group for foster, adoptive, or kinship families, we would welcome your group's affiliation with FACES. There is no charge, although at least 5 members of your support group would need to join as FACES members ($5)--if all of your members join you can receive the introductory rate of $1.00 per caregiver. The link below provides you with the affiliation agreement which can be signed by your group leader and mailed to us at: 3900 W. Broad St., Richmond, VA 23230. We look forward to your affiliation!
